SKU: N/A Category:

Sorghum (Sorghum vulgare Pers.), popularly known as jowar, is the most important food and fodder crop of dry land agriculture. Sorghum is originated in India and Africa. The high yielding varieties mature in about 100-120 days duration after which they are harvested. The crop is mainly grown in red, chalka soils during kharif and in medium to deep black soils during maghi and Rabi seasons (harvested in the spring season while it is sown in winter. The Rabi crops are sown around mid-November, preferably after the monsoon rains are over, and harvesting begins in April / May.). Jowar can be grown on less fertile soils and requires moderate rainfall and moderate temperature. Specifically, alluvial soil or mixed black soil and red soil are perfect for Jowar.
