Grain sorghum has been grown as a corn substitute in regions of the Piedmont too hot or too dry for corn production because sorghum plants remain dormant during periods of drought and resume growth under favorable conditions, Acreage has been centered in Union, Stanly, Anson and Rowan Counties, with scattered planting3 in the Coastal Plain. There have been about 80,000 acres of sorghum planted in North Carolina in recent years, and yields have averaged 49 bushels (2,722 pounds) per acre.
