Researchers on path for herbicide-resistant sorghum

By Larry Dreiling

When asked their main concern about growing sorghum, many producers have a two-word answer: weed control.

"I've asked sorghum growers why they have converted so much land to corn production, and they tell you in growing corn, they have several programs that work very well in managing weeds, while we don't in growing sorghum," said Kassim Al-Khatib, Ph.D., professor of agronomy at Kansas State University.

The underlying problem, as it often is in research, is a lack of funding.

Enter the United Sorghum Checkoff Program and DuPont, which are currently funding Al-Khatib's research in new over-the-top weed control solutions to allow sorghum growers better management opportunities and flexibility in crop rotations.
