This study is based upon field work undertaken in mid-1998 in the context of the project 'sorghum in India: technical, policy, economic, and social factors affecting improved utilization', which was funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) and jointly undertaken by ICRISAT, NRCS, and NRI. The main industries using sorghum in India are the animal feed sector, alcohol distilleries, and starch industries. Only rainy-season sorghum is used for industrial purposes. Postrainy-sorghum is a highly valued food grain, and thus too expensive to be used as industrial raw material.
