Sorghum Clinic - Friday, Apr 22

sorghum seed MarMBgrain will be hosting a sorghum clinic in Rose Hill, NC at our main office.  We will have sorghum experts presenting information on how to be successful with sorghum.  Sorghum is  a great fit for many farmers who might not have excellent corn land and who want the advantages it brings as part of a rotation crop.  This year may specifically be a great year for sorghum since soybean seed has been harder and harder to lock up.  If you would like to attend the Sorghum Clinic next Friday, Apr 22, please call Josh Goode at 910-284-2448 to register.  We will meet from 9am to 12pm, and lunch will follow.  Here is more information on the sorghum program we will offer this year to help make your business more successful.
