The new sorghum variety Costeño-201 was developed in the Experimental Field Culiacan (CEVACU) of the National Research Institute for Forestry, Agriculture and Livestock (INIFAP), with the registration number SOG-200389-182 in the Catalog of Feasible Certification Varieties (CVC) of Mexico. This variety is adapted to the sorghum-producing areas of Sinaloa State. Costeño-201, is a cream-grain variety and is recommended for irrigated and rainfed conditions. The average yield of the variety is 3 292 kg ha-1 grain and 25 517 kg ha-1 of green fodder, it outperforms on average of 8.8% and 12.4% respectively to commercial hybrids from private companies, which are grown in the region under the same conditions. Costeño-201 has better bromatological quality than commercial hybrids regarding to forage, with 9.5% protein and 64% digestibility, on average it exceeds in 2.7% and 5% respectively to commercial hybrids. It is tolerant to diseases that occur in the region, such as: ergot (Claviceps african), anthracnose (Colletotrichum graminicola), panicle blight (Fusarium moniliforme) and charcoal stalk rot (Macrophomina phaseolina). Forage of sorghum Costeño-201, is recommended as a dual-purpose material in fodder conservation practices such as hay and silage.
