Like maize, kaffircorn (or grain sorghum as it is commonly known in the U.S.A.) is one of South Afrlca's traditional field crops. It is frequently planted by maize producers as a supplementary crop, since it is more drought-resistant than maize, and hence, should a drought occur, the farmer might still be able to reap a coffircorn crop.
