WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Two grain sorghum industry groups in Kansas are joining forces to share staff and office space.
The Kansas Grain Sorghum Commission and the Kansas Grain Sorghum Producers Association announced Thursday in a news release that they had joined into a cooperative agreement.
Sorghum Commission administrator Jill Barnhardt will be the association’s executive director. The sorghum association will no longer share staff with the Kansas Corn Growers Association.
Commission chairman Clayton Short says he expects the partnership to function as a very efficient group with joint staff, focused research projects and a unified voice for sorghum growers.
