Since combine grain sorghums
are becoming very popular in
East Texas, some demonstrations
will be conducted in the county
this year using several varieties'
of open pollinated and hybrids. It
has been found that grain sorg-
hums will produce high yields un-
der normal conditions. These hy-
brids that are used in these dem-
onstrations have been originated
at the Experiment Station at A &
At and have been thoroughly test-
ed in this area.
H. W. Walker of Bullard will
plant 8 one-acre plots of these va-
rieties to be checked one against
the other. After these demonstra-
tions have been completed they
can determine the variety best
M. I). Nunnally of the Cove Spr-
ings community will plant 4 one-
acre plots. Results of previous
demonstrations show that produc-
tion of grain sorghum is more ec-
onomical and earlier than produc-
tion of corn. It takes less fertiliz-
er and less cultivation to produce
about the same amount of grain
that corn will produce qnd since
combines are available that are
more economic to harvest. The
grains of these sorghums are high
in food value, higher than corn
according to the experiment sta-
tions records. They are palatable
to livestock and very nutritious.
