The 2019 Annual Meeting is going back to basics as it is going to be "SORGHUM UNIVERSITY".  If you are just starting or want to learn new sorghum production and/or processing methods then this will be a great opportunity to come and interact will other people from all over the nation.


The National Sweet Sorghum Producers and Processors Association (NSSPPA) is a group of farmers, hobbyists, and others interested in promoting sweet sorghum.  They have come together with an appreciation for nostalgic mementos of a by-gone culture with the expressed purposes of:
  • Recapturing and fostering the study of the art and science of sorghum production.
  • Developing and disseminating information concerning these subjects to interested parties.
  • Encouraging and promoting the combining of the best methods of the old fashioned sorghum maker with the best of today’s technology to make the best possible products from sorghum cane juice.
