Sorghum: The Old-New Everything Crop

This resilient and versatile plant is experiencing a surge in demand and production as farmers and consumers rediscover its worth.

At around 60 days from planting, the flower stem has reached its maximum height and the small flower cluster begins blooming. The grain is produced at the top of the plant. For grain production, the plants are left in place until the seeds reach full maturity. Individual kernels will be firm, not the least bit juicy when popped between finger and thumb.
