Sorghum bicolor (L). Moench is the crop for grain for human and animal consumption. The aim of this study is to document the production and use Sorghum in Senegal through a literature review. Medline database and scholar Google were used. To be selected, the manuscripts were to address the use and production of sorghum and their health implications. World sorghum production is about 60 million tons per year; the main producing countries are the USA, Nigeria, and India. In Senegal there is on the one hand of traditional sorghum varieties and on the other, those improved by the Senegalese Institute of Agricultural Research (ISRA) that are adapted to our soil and productive. Sorghum grains are used by people in semi-arid countries in Africa and Asia, for consumption as pasta, boiled and traditional drinks. Studies have shown the virtues of this cereal on the health of men, hence the need for further studies to be eligible for any of the therapeutic potential of the latter.
