Cornell sorghum variety and establishment
MetadataShow full item record
Sorghum, mainly a crop of the deep south, is being planted on more acres across the northeast. Originally relegated as an emergency summer feed when earlier crops had failed, or for part-time livestock farms, the crop is going mainstream because of the number of economic and practical advantages it offers. The sorghum species is supported by major breeding programs and has a huge, diverse genetic base. This allows tailoring to a wide range of needs and conditions. With New York Farm Viability Institute support we researched best management practices and varieties for north of the Mason-Dixon line.
