Corn and Sorghum
Corn is one of the leading crops in the Delta by acreage. While most of the corn grown in California is for silage, most of the corn grown in the Delta is for grain. My research and extension program provides locally-relevant information to enhance the efficiency, profitability, and stewardship of Delta corn production.
Sorghum has similar growth habits as corn and is sometimes grown as a substitute for corn because of its tolerance of drought and low-input conditions. My research and extension program builds on broader UC research to enhance Delta sorghum production.
