Still Time to Act on Double Cropping Sorghum in Kansas Counties

For producers in central and eastern Kansas counties, you can now apply for a written agreement with your insurance agent with no history of double cropping. This agreement would need to be done by July 15, but you want to get it done as quickly as possible to avoid the rush and growing season inspection while also taking into account the Late Planting deadline of June 25.
For example, given a 54 bu/ac T-yield on your double crop sorghum, you could have $176/ac of protection per acre. Sorghum has herbicide tolerant varieties that could help control tough weeds and still give you residue for next year’s crops with multiple market channels from ethanol to petfood and international export, double crop sorghum is a wonderful option and producers are encouraged to consider this option in the next two weeks.
