Sorghum is a member of the grass family has been grown in India for about 4,000 years, and has been a major crop in Africa for even longer.  It was also used as a staple food in China thousands of years before rice.

Today the largest sorghum producers are the U.S., China and India.  Sorghum is used as a feed grain, in porridges, unleavened bread and beverages.

Worldwide, over half of the sorghum grown is for human consumption.

Grain sorghum in the U.S. is used mainly as an animal feed, but is also used in food products and as an industrial feedstock.  Sorghum is also used in manufacturing wallboard and biodegradable packaging materials.  Up to 12% of U.S. sorghum is used to produce ethanol and various co-products.  Almost 1/2 of U.S. sorghum production is exported.
