Sorghum farming originated from Northern Africa, it is the fifth most important grain after maize, rice, wheat and barley.

Planting Sorghum/Guinea Corn Farming

Sorghum is also called Guinea Corn Farming, Egyptian millet, Sudan grass etc. Sorghum has more than 30 varieties and hundreds of improved varieties. But the commonly cultivated sorghum in Nigeria and other African countries is Sorghum bicolor because of their outstanding properties.

LAND PREPARATION

Like other grains land preparation should be done by clearing grasses and debris from the soil. Loose the soil up for proper agronomy. A sandy-loam soil rich in organic matter with alkaline PH of 6.0-8.0 is ideal for their cultivation. It can be planted on a plain ground but ridges construction will support sorghum growth very well.

PROPAGATION

Furthermore, Propagation is done by broadcasting and drilling. Spacing 20-30cm between rows and 15cm between two stands. In Nigeria sorghum is planted between September-January. Plant 2 seeds per hole of 3cm depth, space them closely and thin after 2 weeks. 3-7 kg of seeds depending on the variety is required in a hectare.

Weeding in Sorghum/Guinea Corn Farming

Sorghum is a cereal from the grass family so other competitors should not be allowed. Weed sorghum farm early in other to prevent pests attack. It will also help in exposing the plant to adequate sunlight.

FERTILIZER APPLICATION

Sorghum farming can be done without the use of fertilizer. Because sorghum can grow under harsh conditions. However you can apply small quantity of organic fertilizer either chicken dung or compost manure.

PEST/DISEASE CONTROL

The commonest pest in sorghum farming are; shoot fly, downy mildew, maize stem borers, boliworm, chill out borer while diseases like fungus, bacteria and virus affects them.

In Guinea corn farming the most challenging situation is birds invasion, quelea birds in particular. They feed on mature sorghum seed, causing losses. You can use the same method in rice farming to tackle them. Do not apply pesticides on the crops, rather use natural treatment such as the use of neem; oil, water or leaves.

HARVESTING/YIELD

Sorghum takes 4 months to mature. When the seeds turns from green to red and starts drying . Just know that they are matured for harvest if they are for fodder. But the ones for grain can be allowed for 2 more weeks before harvesting.

If you press the grain with your fingers and it feels hard and unbreakable you quickly harvest them before they starts falling off. Cut the plant from down with cutlass or any sharp object and then hull them out. Dry the sorghum seeds in an open place under the sun before storing.

One hectare will yield about 30 bags of of 100 kg , 2.6-2.8 tonnes with new techniques. While acre will yield 500 kg. The yield increases when improved and hybrid varieties, coupled with new technology are used.

Sorghum/Guinea Corn Farming Marketing 

It has a ready market. Sell to market traders, brewery companies, pap sellers, bakers etc. Since it is an exportable produce you source for international buyers. In 2010, Mexico was the highest importer of sorghum.
