S. bicolor is native to Africa and is grown throughout the world. Sorghum is the fifth most important cereal crop in the world and third in the United States. It exhibits C4 photosynthetic pathway. It is one of the most drought-tolerant crop that grows well in semiarid regions. It exhibits a deep root system and thick leaf wax. Both traits More...
