Sorghum plants.

Sorghum is a plant that grows in a tall stalk and is referred to as a cereal grass. The grains or kernels it produces, known as cereal grains, are similar to wheat, corn, and oats. Sorghum can be milled or ground to make flour, which can be used to make bread, pasta, baked goods, and more. Sorghum is typically used to feed livestock during the winter months.
