About the Producers Association


Join The Nation’s Sorghum Leader

Kansas farmers normally produce between 40 and 50 percent of the U.S. sorghum crop. The Kansas Grain Sorghum Producers Association (KGSPA) is a grassroots organization that represents Kansas sorghum farmers on the state and national level. KGSPA is the only organization with a registered lobbyist representing sorghum growers in the Kansas Legislature. National Sorghum Producers (NSP) is the voice of sorghum growers on the national level and becoming a member of KGSPA confers membership to NSP as well!

The association gives growers a voice in legislative, regulatory and industry affairs through efforts funded through membership dues and industry support.


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.

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 continues to play a key role in advocating and protecting crop protection choices for Kansas sorghum farmers. KGSPA is one of the founding leaders of the Triazine Network, a national coalition of agriculture groups who continue to work to keep the atrazine and other triazine herbicides available to growers. KGSPA has worked since the mid-1990s to ensure that regulatory decisions regarding atrazine made by EPA are based on sound scientific evidence. Agriculture representatives on the Triazine Network were groundbreakers in involving growers in the regulatory process at EPA and continue to actively represent growers in these issues. Access to atrazine is especially important to sorghum growers who have limited crop protection choices. KGSPA continues to work to support more crop protection choices for our growers.


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.
