Grain sorghum has a reputation for being able to withstand dry weather. Southeast Nebraska farmer Don Bloss says that’s been the case on his farm this year.
“We were very dry,” Bloss says. “We’ve had two dry years and situations where the corn just hasn’t been able to make it because we’ve had very dry Junes and Julys. Sorghum has hung in there, been patient, and kind of waited of rain.”
Bloss says he expects to see some excellent sorghum yields.
