Performance of grain sorghum hybrids is evaluated annually by Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station (LAES) researchers. The purpose of these trials is to provide Louisiana growers, seedsmen, county agents of the Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service (LCES) and other interested individuals and organizations with unbiased performance data for commercial grain sorghum hybrids submitted for evaluation by private agencies.
