Sorgo (Sorghum) en la Zona regable del Río Adaja (Ávila)

One of the top five grains produced around the world, sorgo (sorghum) production in France covers some 60,000 hectares, mostly in the southeast, and is increasingly studied as a plant that can better tolerate drought.

It is mostly used as animal feed in France, but like millet (same word in French as in English) and buckwheat, sorghum has no gluten so is useful in special diets.
