Sorghum is a very important cereal. It is the 4th important cereal after wheat, rice and maize. It is used as a maize substitute for some purposes because of their similar nutritional values. Sorghum has numerous varieties, including grain sorghums, used for food. Grass sorghums, grown for hay and fodder; and broomcorn, used in making brooms and brushes.
The characteristic strong flavour of sorghum can be reduced by the processing. The grain can be used in making edible oil, starch, dextrose (a sugar), paste, and alcoholic beverages among others.
The stalks are not left out, they are used as fodder and building materials. Sweet sorghums are sometimes used for forage and for syrup manufacture and for the production of ethyl alcohol for biofuel.

Demand for sorghum is higher than the current supply because of the increasing demand from local industries in Nigeria.

The advantage of being a substitute for maize as stated earlier makes sorghum a sought after cereal.
This presents good market and an opportunity for interested investors to supply sorghum to industries in Nigeria and other countries in Europe and even Africa.
