A newly revised K-State Research and Extension publication, Kansas Grain Sorghum Management 2022, is now available and can be accessed online at: https://bookstore.ksre.ksu.edu/pubs/MF3046.pdf

This publication offers advice to producers, crop consultants, and agronomists to manage their sorghum crop as efficiently and profitably as possible.

  • Tillage and rotations
  • Hybrid selection
  • Planting practices
  • Rate of dry down before harvest
  • Weed management
  • Irrigation management
  • Fertilizer requirements
  • Diseases
