Reliance, a new grain sorghum for South Dakota, stands longer after a killing frost and has a wider range in planting time than Norghum. It is also larger seeded and has a sturdier stalk. About 3,000 pounds of Reliance seed was released by the South Dakota Experiment Station to the County Crop Improvement Associations in the spring of 1953. Tests conducted at several locations on widely different soil types and under varying climatic conditions show Reliance is well adapted to the sorghum growing areas of the state.
