This variety is adapted to sorghum-producing areas in State of Sinaloa, Mexico. The variety Sinaloense-202 has cream grain and is recommended either for irrigation and rainfall areas. The average yield of the variety is 3 210 kg ha-1 of grain and 28 608 kg ha-1 of green forage, which is 8% and 18.1%respectively; higher than the grain and fresh forage yield of commercial hybrids from private companies cultivated in the region. Sinaloense-202 has better bromatologic quality in the forage than commercial hybrids, with 8.3% of protein and 59% of digestibility, which is 1.1% and 10% higher than commercial hybrids. It is tolerant to ergot (Claviceps african), anthracnose (Colletotrichum graminícola), head blight (Fusarium moniliforme) and charcoal rot (Macrophomina phaseolina).
