Sorghum U to discuss profitability, new markets for grain sorghum in South Dakota

Sorghum U will head to South Dakota to highlight the profitability of grain sorghum and will discuss new market opportunities opening up as ethanol begins to vie for grain sorghum.

The farmer-focused event with classroom-style breakout sessions will take place on April 9 at the Bridges Conference Center at Cedar Shore Resort in Oacoma, S.D.

“It is very exciting to see private industry take an interest in sorghum,” said John Duff, Sorghum Checkoff renewables director. “When you have organizations seeking out sorghum, the producers benefit greatly. We hope this session of Sorghum U will better equip these farmers to produce the quality and quantity of sorghum these end users are looking for, and to build lasting relationships between producers and end-users.”

Industry insiders are set to present information on basic agronomics, advanced agronomics, marketing, and economics. The sessions will include discussion of farm-level practices that will help increase producer profitability.

The program will encourage informal discussions between industry insiders and both experienced and new growers alike. Previous Sorghum U events in Texas, Kansas, and Nebraska hosted over 400 farmers interested in introducing or returning grain sorghum to their crop rotations.

To register for the event visit www.hpj.com/sorghumu or call 855-422-6652. There is no charge to attend the event and lunch is included.
