GRAIN AND FORAGE SORGHUM
Meeting the demand
Sorghum is a high yielding, nutrient-efficient and drought tolerant crop that can be cultivated on over 80% of the world’s agricultural land. Forage & grain sorghum’s unique characteristics allow farmers to meet the growing demands for sustainable food, feed, and biomass production while reducing the cost of inputs such as water. Its geographic distribution spans temperate to tropical climates, and its rich genetic diversity allows for multiple specialized uses.
