Abstract

The profitability of producing irrigated sorghum for the cash market is compared to producing two types of irrigated hybrid sorghum seed for sale to seed companies. Partial enterprise budgets are used to estimate profit rates for the three types of sorghum production activities. During the study period hybrid sorghum seed averaged 75.1 and 56.2 percent, respectively, greater revenue per acre than commercial grain sorghum.
