      Sorghum usually grows poorly on sandy soils, except where a heavy textured sub-soil is present. Sorghum is more tolerant of alkaline salts than other grain crops and can therefore be successfully cultivated on soils with a pH (KCl) between and Sorghum can better tolerate short periods of water logging compared with maize.

      This technical note aims to describe the market incentives and disincentives for sorghum in Ethiopia. For this purpose, yearly averages of farm-gate and wholesale prices are compared with reference prices calculated on the basis of the price of the commodity in the international market.

        In this study, a GIS method was undertaken to study the suitability of barley and sorghum crops. Most of the lands in the study area are suitable for the cultivation of the two crops as shown by. In terms of tonnage, sorghum is Africa’s second most important cereal. The continent produces about 20 million tonnes of sorghum per annum, about one-third of the world crop. However, these figures do not do justice to the importance of sorghum in Africa. It is the only viable food grain for many of the world’s most food insecure people.

Sorghum Dehulling and Whitening Machine Working Principles The sorghum is fed in to whitening chamber through flow adjustment device, and conveyed by the screw head to the emery roll which grinds the bran at a speed and makes them rub between each other so as to dehull and whiten the sorghum.

study sites for the value chain study of sorghum in Ethiopia. These woredas are: Alamata from Tigray, Alemaya and Mieso from Oromia, Lay Armachiwo and Wegera from Amhara, Konso and.

The results obtained on dehulling of U.S. sorghum are presented in Table 5. Yield of dehulled product was 85%, higher than for the millets.

There are very few published results on industrial dehulling of millet and sorghum and, therefore, it is difficult to relate the yields obtained in this study with those obtained with other by: 9.

The role of introduced sorghum and millets in Ethiopian agriculture Asfaw Adugna Melkassa Agricultural Research Center, PO BoxNazareth, Ethiopia Email: [email protected] Introduction Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) is one of the most widely grown cereal crops in Ethiopia. It Cited by: factors affecting sorghum production and the sorghum farming system used by the farmers in the region, landraces grown by farmers, source of seed, traits preference, maturity period, cultural practices, pre and post harvest handling, utilization and constraints in sorghum.

Dejene, M. Grain Storage Methods and Their Effects on Sorghum Grain Quality in Hararghe, Ethiopia. Doctoral Thesis. ISSNISBN The majority of peasants in Hararghe, eastern Ethiopia, store sorghum grain in underground pits. These pits usually elevate grain moisture and storage temperature to levels that favour.

A Pedal operated sorghum dehuller for dehulling tempered grain was developed and tested for its performance using two sorghum varieties (Dionje and Jumbo). The use of short tempering duration (10 – 15 minutes) followed by a short resting period (5 – 10 Minutes) to ensured that all the tempering moisture was absorbed into the grain before the grain was introduced into the dehuller thus.

Sorghum is the world’s fifth most important cereal in terms of the land used to grow it and the volume produced. Sorghum is an especially important crop and diet staple in poor countries. Other grains are unsuitable in areas that get little rainfall, that are subject to drought or where irrigation is not possible.

As a result of the offsetting effect of a rise in productivity and decline in harvested area, the world sorghum production (tonnes) has been on a horizontal trend. The combined effect of a decline in area harvested and a rise in yield productivity have resulted in an overall increase in world millet production (tonnes) trend.

During the last three decades, significant numbers of breeding lines. Prouction and productivity of sorghum is highly threatened by different diseases in South Tigray, Ethiopia. However, the importance of each disease has not been assessed and well profiled to sound management strategy.

To determine the occurrence and intensity of diseases survey was carried out in two major sorghum growing districts of South Tigray in cropping season. Abstract. In the following pages we will describe and discuss the kinds of sorghum grown in various parts of the country and the climatic, ethnological, and historical bases for the biogeographic patterns of sorghum distribution in Ethiopia.

To include sorghum in a book on "lost" crops, on the face of it, seems like a gross mistake. After all, the plant is Africa's contribution to the world's top crops.

1 Indeed, it belongs to the elite handful of plants that collectively provide more than 85 percent of all human energy. Globally, it produces approximately 70 million metric tons of grain from about 50 million hectares of land. Global Sorghum Market size is expected to grow at a significant CAGR in the forecast period.

The rising demand for sorghum market encapsulates many factors. Sorghum is widely used as an alternative sweetener for alcoholic beverages. It has a variety of applications in fencing, pet food, floral arrangements, building material, fencing, etc. Ethiopia is probably the original home of sorghum and is the source of many wild and cultivated forms adapted to a wide range of growing conditions.

Consequently Ethiopia is a valuable reservoi r of dl verse geneti c materi a1 for sorghum breeders throughout the worl d. Sorghum research began in Ethiopia in the mid s at the. An Economic Assessment of Sorghum Improvement in Mali.

The authors gratefully acknowledge the the technical support of Eva Weltzien-Rattunde and Fred. In Africa, although only a few countries contribute a major share of area, sorghum is widely distributed and is a major staple food grain in large parts of the continent.

In spite of its economic importance, sorghum cropped area around the world has declined over the last four decades at a rate of over million ha per year. Mono-cropping of sorghum is usual practice by small holders in Eastern Hararghe zone which aggravates the infestation of striga in case of susceptible varieties and has risk of crop failure in most cases due to erratic and unreliable rainfall.

Thus, it was important to undertake research on cropping system which can make the farmers less vulnerable to current changing climate. Sorghum will grow in low fertility,moderately acidic and highly alkaline soils, but it is best adapted to fertile, well drained soils at a pH between – Sorghum is not tolerant of frost, shade, or sustained flooding (Clark, ; FAO, ; Undersander, ).

Establishment Sorghum can be established in conventional, reduced.Grain sorghum acreage expanded in most of the traditional grain sorghum producing counties in Phillips, Lee, Crittenden, Mississippi and St. Francis counties saw their grain sorghum acreage increase between 72 and percent as compared to the season.

The mentioned counties are also the largest producing ones, with Phillips ranking. In the study the estimated mean level of technical efficiency of sorghum producers was about 79%. This reveals that in the short run there exists a possibility to increase the level of sorghum output by about 21% using the existing local practices and technical knowledge of Author: Haileselassie Amare, Dawit Alemu.
