WELCOME TO THE SORGHUM TRUST

 

After the termination of the Sorghum Board in 1997, all funds of the Sorghum Board were transferred to the Sorghum Trust. Such funds became the discretionary funds of the Sorghum Trust, governed by the Trustees in terms of the Trust Deed. The main objective of the Sorghum Trust is to maximise the income of the Trust and to provide funding for the benefit of the Sorghum Industry - in particular for sorghum research & development projects and the maintenance of information required by the Sorghum Industry.

The Trust Deed provides for five trustees, who must each represent of the following affected parties: The Minister of Agriculture, Sorghum traders, Commercial sorghum producers, Emerging sorghum producers and Sorghum processors.
