In Haiti, sorghum production and profitability have been shown to be limited by both biotic and abiotic stresses. To sorghum farmers, one of the principal components of sorghum production is achieving actual yield, which under subsistence farming can be challenging. In order to help, FAVACA sent Dr. Louis K. Prom, a United States Department of Agriculture employee, to Haiti in order to train farmers in the Dumilseau and Bas Groman regions. He was the best person for the job because of his extensive experience in the agricultural field of work in the United States and abroad.
