Did you know that sorghum is a gluten-free, non-GMO ancient grain? It is commonly used as feed for livestock, though people in certain parts of the world consume it. It can produce nutritious grain even with less water and fertilizer. Would you try this kind of farming if opportunities in consumer food and ethanol production kept rising?

Sorghum farming is not very popular around where I stay. It is utilized in most ethanol plants and in processing livestock feed. I think that it is suitable for farmers with tracks of land.

I have never heard of it before. Honesty I don't think I would try to grow it because I don't know if I could sell it. I am going to look into it though.

Sorghum is a usual ingredient for livestock feed in some places. I didn't know that it is a gluten-free crop. By conducting sufficient research, a farmer can understand the market demand and supply.
