Thrives in heat.

Like corn, but more drought-resistant.  Doesn't need fertile conditions.

The grain is gluten-free  and is used like polenta or made into flour.

The grain is excellent for beermaking. Interchangable with corn for feeding livestock and poultry. Huge plants make lots of compost or straw.Under some wet conditions, fresh sorghum leaves can develop toxicity to cloven-hoofed animals. As silage or dried for hay, it is non-toxic.
Sorghum bicolor W,H/Matures 13/Harvest 0-2/Yield 6-24 seed, 88-350 green biomass, 25-100 dry biomass/Spacing 4-7"
