I grew up on a northeast Nebraska farm, not far from the Missouri River. It was a typical diversified farm of that region and era--corn, soybeans, alfalfa and oats, plus hogs and cattle. Grain sorghum was not a crop that we grew that far north in the state.
So, I admit I don't know a bushel about sorghum, but as a writer on this magazine with a camera ready at the side, this crop's colorful heads--red, brown and tan--always drew my attention. Sorghum fields are photogenic.
