Caption: Grass sorghum pollen. Sorghum is a grass of Old World origin, a drought-resistant, heat-tolerant member of the grass family. Wild species of sorghum are attested as early as 8000 years ago in the Nile regions of southern Egypt and the Sudan. The many subspecies are divided into four groups: grain sorghums (such as milo), grass sorghums (for pasture and hay), sweet sorghums (formerly called Guinea corn, used to produce sorghum syrups), and broom corn (for brooms and brushes). Sorghum's ability to thrive with less water than corn may be due to its ability to hold water in its foliage better than corn. Sorghum has a waxy coating on its leaves and stems which helps to keep water in the plant even in intense heat. Enhanced SEM. Image width: 162 micrometers; magnification: 617x when the image is printed 10 cm wide.
