Sorghum grain markets
Sorghum is the fifth most widely-grown crop in the world with over 40 million hectares.
It can be found on all continents and in both tropical and temperate zones. Just over 40% of this production is intended for human consumption, primarily in Africa and Asia, where it is eaten as a whole grain, like rice, in semolina and fl our (gluten free), or after transformation, in the form of sugar, or malted and fermented, as alcohol (beer, spirits, etc.).
