Overview

Sorghum has characteristics that make it able to regenerate the above-ground portion of the plant. These features allow producers to seek a second grain crop within the same growing year by preparing the old plants immediately after the removal of the main crop. This publication discusses important factors to consider when contemplating a ratoon crop, including water stress, grain quality, insect problems, bird problems, and marketing. (3 pages)
