Three K-State Sorghum Production Schools will be offered in late January to provide in-depth training targeted for sorghum producers and key-stakeholders. The schools are sponsored by Kansas Grain Sorghum Commission, Agwest Commodities, Advanta Seeds, and ShieldAg Equipment.


The schools will cover a number of issues facing sorghum growers: weed and insect control strategies, crop production practices, nutrient management and soil fertility, risk management, farm bill programs, marketing, and seed technology development.
