Abstract

Within the last decade sorghum has taken its place among the important crops of the country.

As a fodder crop peculiarly adapted to the dry climate of parts of the West it has proved its worth ; as a source of molasses and syrup it has become popular with both producer and consumer; but it is chiefly as a prospective source of the great staple which the people of the United States consume at the rate of fifty-six pounds per capita per annum, and of which we import annually one and one-third million tons at a cost of over 120,000,000 dollars, that sorghum now attracts the attention of all enlightened Americans.
