Although well-adapted to Indiana climate and soils, grain sorghum is a minor crop in the state. Since Purdue has conducted relatively little agronomic research on this crop, links are provided to grain sorghum information from other states where the crop is grown more widely. If you have questions about the geographic or climatic adaptability of the information from other states, contact the Purdue specialist listed to the left of this paragraph..
