U.S. sorghum farmers are celebrating a rebound in demand from China, reports AgWEB. Last week, USDA reported a sale of 32 million bushels to China, which marks the largest sorghum export sale ever.
National Sorghum Producers (NSP) says the sale smashed the previous record of 23 million bushels, which was sold in December 2014.
Tim Lust, CEO of NSP, told AgWEB that U.S. sorghum producers have now experienced 90 days of solid sales from China, momentum they hope will continue.
Lust thinks Phase One is helping incentivize the renewed interest, but it’s also added need from livestock feeders.
