ABSTRACT
Kafir, an annual plant that resembles the corn plant in having a stout, pithy stem and broad leaves. Although it is a variety of sorghum, it is often called kafir corn. The grains, unlike those of corn, are borne in a long, thick panicle (cluster) at the tip of the stem. The plant was introduced into the United States from Africa in 1876.
