Sorghum bicolor (species) (Sorghum (genus), Poaceae (family), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Species of grass native to northern Africa, but cultivated widely for its edible grain. Sorghum has been cultivated since ancient times for its grain (couscous), as a source of syrup (molasses). It is also made into alcoholic beverages, as well as for biofuels. The tall, stiff, pithy stems are used for brooms, baskets, and construction. A reddish purple dye, guineense, is extracted from the leaves and stems, used for dyeing Niger goatskins.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Grassoort die inheems is in Noord-Afrika, maar op grote schaal wordt verbouwd vanwege zijn eetbare graan. Men kweekt Sorghum al sinds de oudheid vanwege zijn graan (couscous) en om er stroop van te maken. Men gebruikt de soort ook voor alcoholische dranken en biobrandstoffen. De lange stijve stengels vol merg gebruikt men voor bezems, manden en constructies. Uit de bladeren en stengels kan men een roodpaarse kleurstof winnen (���guineense'), die men gebruikt om geitenleer uit Niger te verven.
