Description: Revised edition. "This bulletin describes the varieties of sorghum and tells how to plant, cultivate, and harvest the crop. It gives the methods for manufacturing sorghum syrup, often incorrectly termed sorghum "molasses," with illustrations of the apparatus used. The approximate yields of cane, of syrup, and of sorghum seed are given. Economic considerations as to the location and arrangement of a sorghum-syrup plant, fuel used, the by-products and their uses, and making syrup on shares are set forth. Tables showing the sugar content of juice from typical varieties of sorghum cane and statistics for the yield of syrup by states from 1859 to 1909 are included." -- p. 2
