Max Armstrong says the golden hour of the ancient grain sorghum may be on its way or at least that’s the hope as it gains a renewed interest.
Sorghum is a very nutritious crop that requires a third less water than corn which makes it a good crop for areas with low rainfall and groundwater supplies. It also handles heat very well and requires no tillage.
As far as nutrition, it is gluten-free and high protein which could make it more popular among various food and beverage suppliers.
Plus, it is gaining interest from private investors who want to bring the crop to the forefront.
Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
