Have you ever seen sorghum growing head-high by mid-July? We haven’t either! Sorghum Shootout grower Tim Fisher is already seeing head-high sorghum fields at his operation in Arkansas, thanks in part to the Sorghum Shootout program.

Sorghum Shootout is the latest National Sorghum Producers (NSP) program, sponsored by StollerUSA – which you may remember we told you about when they introduced it at Commodity Classic. The Shootout is designed to help growers push through yield barriers and raise the roof on sorghum yields. It was created to provide a forum for sorghum growers across the country to be exposed to some of the best management practices available.

These practices are needed to reach the highest yields in sorghum production year after year, and farmers like Fisher are already seeing results.

The Sorghum Shootout will chronicle the management styles Fisher, as well as Earl Wetta, of Garden Plain, Kansas, and Steven Albracht, of Hart, Texas, two other award-winning growers.

To see how the growers are doing so far and to follow their progress throughout the season, check out the Sorghum Shootout website.
