About the Book
Sorghum is one of the five important cereal crops of the world and cultivated by millions in the semi-arid tropics for food and animal fodder. In addition to high yielding cultivars, crop and soil management plays a major role in sorghum cultivation. The present book “Handbook of Sorghum” contains 19 chapters covering origin and history, morphology and classification, soil management, varietal improvement, nutrient and water management, integrated management of weeds, insect-pests and diseases, sorghum-based intercropping systems, sorghum food and industrial utilization, biotechnology of sorghum, forage sorghum, sorghum as bio-energy crop and sorghum cultivation under zero tillage in rice-fallows.
The hand book covers the fundamentals of the subject as well as at the same time inspire and prepare sorghum scientists and extension workers for the emerging frontiers. We believe this book will generate new ideas and serve as a guide to students, extension workers and also researchers for working in problem areas to find their easy solutions.
