Harvest seeds: Wait for seeds to dry on the plant before harvesting.
Clean seeds: Once seeds stalks have been harvested, separate the seeds from the chaff.
Label and Store: After cleaning seeds, label and store in a cool dry place. Properly stored sorghum seeds will remain viable for 4 years.
Sorghum does best in hot environments and grows during the summer. Sorghum does well in sandy soil, and tends to be more flood and drought resistance than other grains, like corn.
Sorghum is self-pollinated and usually does not cross with other varieties. To ensure seed integrity, you can separate varieties by 600 feet, or bag individual flower heads.
