The Kansas Grain Sorghum Producers Association (KGSPA) was organized in 1976 by Kansas farmers to provide legislative and regulatory issue representation as well as to serve as a promotion and communications tool for grain sorghum producers in Kansas. The nine member board represents the nine crop reporting districts of Kansas.
The association gives growers a voice in legislative, regulatory and industry affairs through efforts funded through membership dues and industry support.
KGSPA is active in lobbying for grain sorghum growers on a state and national level. From water quality and pesticides to ethanol and the farm bill, KGSPA is the recognized voice of the Kansas grain sorghum farmers in Topeka and, working with NSP, in Washington, DC.
KGSPA works closely with the Kansas Department of Agriculture, EPA and other regulatory bodies to make certain the needs and concerns of Kansas grain sorghum producers are heard.
KGSPA has close working relationships with companies involved with the grain sorghum industry.
KGSPA is the Kansas affiliate of the National Sorghum Producers. Team Sorghum works for their members and the grain sorghum industry throughout Kansas and the world.
