    Atrazine is equally important for grain sorghum farmers. In fact, fewer herbicides are registered for use in grain sorghum than in field corn. This analysis showed that if atrazine and propazine were not available to U.S. grain sorghum producers, grain sorghum yield would decline approximately 17 bushels per triazine treated acre, or 13Cited by: 5.

    How a Sorghum Plant Develops R. L. VANDERLIP* Sorghum’s importance as a feed grain has increased in the U.S., and it is a major human food in other areas of the world. To manage the sorghum crop for maximum produc-tion, the producer must understand how the plant grows and develops and what factors affect its growth, development, and nutrient File Size: KB. Grain sorghum, it’s what’s for breakfast. Glenn Schur, Plainview, Texas, grain and cotton producer, says the food grade grain sorghum, Onyx, he grew for the first time last year could offer new opportunities for Southwest farmers looking for alternative crops and new markets. Currently, food-grade sorghum accounts for only 2 percent of the grain sorghum [ ].

      As a nongenetically modified crop, grain sorghum has found favor in the U.S. export market.

The Corn and Grain Sorghum Research. Grain sorghum is an important feedstuff for livestock production. The majority of sorghum produced in the U.S. is grown from South Dakota to southern Texas, primarily on dryland or limited irrigated acres.

Sorghum is a water efficient crop, tolerating heat and moisture stress better than most crops. It also. 1 Amounts shown are for medium (M) soil test levels. Apply 50% of this r ate if soil test is high (H) and omit if sod test is excessively high (EH).

Variety Selection: Improved short-season grain sorghum hybrids are available, but most of the breeding is for the major grain sorghum production areas, which have warmer, longer growing seasons.

Asia Pacific is next in queue. The U.S. Department of Energy has allocated USD 70 million for the research of sorghum as a model feedstock. Other major producers of sorghum are spread across Nigeria, India, Sudan and Ethiopia. In Africa, the support of the local. About 15% of the U.S.
