Durra

 

(Sorghum Durra), a species of annual plant of the genus Sorgo of the family Gramineae. It has a dense inflorescence, a panicle with short branchlets, which points upward or is somewhat bent as in white durra. Durra is cultivated in Africa, Arabia, Afghanistan, Japan, Mediterranean countries, the United States, and elsewhere. In the USSR it is grown in Middle Asia. Durra has great significance as a food. The kernels are made into groats and flour, while the green plants are used for animal feed and the dry stems for fuel.
