Grain Sorghum Drying, Storage and Safety

In Arkansas, grain sorghum does not typically field-dry to a safe moisture content (MC) to avoid quality losses (12% wet basis).  Therefore, it must typically undergo artificial drying to achieve the target MC for safe storage. Grain sorghum has its highest quality at harvest and subsequent post-harvest handling and processing must be carefully planned and managed to avoid a decrease in quality and market value, and provide Arkansas producers with a measure of control over the quality and market value of their grain sorghum.
