Pest Control

Similar to other crops, there are a few insects capable of causing economic damage in sorghum if not managed timely and efficiently. These range from root and seed damaging insects to those that feed on the leaves, the stalks of plants or directly on the sorghum grain. All of these insects, however, can be controlled with sound integrated pest management practices.
