Sorghum 2241341 960 720

Sorghum acres are expected to decrease amid excellent growing conditions because of an ongoing trade dispute, said a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service expert, reports the Waco Tribune-Herald.

Dr. Calvin Trostle, AgriLife Extension agronomist, Lubbock, said the U.S. Department of Agriculture prospective plantings report estimated 1.35 million grain sorghum acres to be planted in Texas in 2019, which is a 13% decrease from 2018.

Trostle said the projected decrease is related to the ongoing trade dispute with China.
