Acres and acres of sorghum lay scorched in the noontime sun in fields east of Round Rock, TX. The drought has made it tough for farmers and cattle owners, but actually sorghum is an annual grass that is extremely drought tolerant, making it an excellent choice for arid and dry areas. It has special adaptations to weather extremes and is a very stable source of nutrition as a result.
