State’s grain sorghum crop late, but good
Mississippi’s farmers showed their ability to adapt when wet spring weather forced many of them to change their planting intentions from corn, cotton and soybeans to late-planted grain sorghum.
“This year it rained from about March 25 through mid-May, which had a huge impact on delaying planting and actually switching crop intentions,” said Erick Larson, state corn and sorghum specialist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service. “The delay in planting corn acres, plus the likelihood that some producers had herbicides down that restricted cropping choices, contributed to a few more acres of grain sorghum this year.”
