Sorghum Promotion, Research, and Information Program  
Sorghum Checkoff Program Logo
The Sorghum Promotion, Research, and Information Program, commonly known as the Sorghum Checkoff Program, was established under the Commodity Promotion, Research, and Information Act of 1996 (Act). The Act authorizes generic promotion, research, and information orders aimed at advancing the demand for agricultural commodities to benefit U.S. producers and consumers. On May 6, 2008, AMS published a final Sorghum Promotion, Research, and Information Order after public notice and comment. The Order became effective on May 7, 2008. The collection of assessments began on July 1, 2008.
