Sweet sorghum, often referred to as "sorgo" or "cane" is the same species as the more familiar grain sorghums [Sorghum bicolor [(L.) Moench]. It is characteristized by a sweet sugary stalk, which historically was an abundant source of syrup. Approximately 800,000 acres were harvested for syrup from 1919 -1921 in the United States. whereas this had declined to 3.710 acres by 1969. The crop is well adapted to drier, hotter regions,but performs well in areas as far north as Nebraska. Sweet sorghum can be grown successfully on most all types of soil, but yields highest during wet years on heavier types
