USDA lowers sorghum production guess

The USDA has trimmed its sorghum production outlook following a downward revision to the average yield estimate.

As of November 1st, U.S. sorghum production is expected to be 235.77 million bushels, down nearly 8.785 million on the month with a 1.6 bushel per acre cut in that average yield guess to 43 bushels per acre on harvested area of 5.48 million acres.

Production was already expected to be significantly smaller than 2021 due to a decline in planted area along with lower yields caused by drought in parts of the U.S.
