Sorghum Checkoff Invests $3.4 Million to Enhance Sorghum's Genetic Potential
The Sorghum Checkoff board of directors Feb. 26 approved funding of $3.4 million in significant investments to private and public research to enhance sorghum’s genetic potential.


Grain attributes, new hybrid development, branding and better management traits are included among the major areas of focus these funded projects will address. The projects approved at the board’s meeting during Commodity Classic last week total $3.4 million over a five-year time frame. These projects represent a unique commitment that will compliment annual efforts made by the Sorghum Checkoff.


“The United Sorghum Checkoff Program remains committed to improving sorghum as a sustainable, profitable and competitive crop,” said Sorghum Checkoff Chairman Stewart Weaver, a producer from Edmondson, Ark. “There is great momentum in the sorghum industry, and we look forward to announcing more details about this investment in the coming weeks.”
