WHAT DOES MABELA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

mabela

Commercial sorghum

Commercial sorghum refers to the cultivation and commercial exploitation of species of grasses within the genus Sorghum. These plants are used for grain, fibre and fodder. The plants are cultivated in warmer climates worldwide. Commercial Sorghum species are native to tropical and subtropical regions of Africa and Asia. Other names include durra, Egyptian millet, feterita, Guinea corn, jwari ज्वारी, jowar, juwar, milo, maize, shallu, Sudan grass, cholam, jola, jonnalu, gaoliang, great millet, kafir corn, dura, dari, mtama, and solam. Sorghum has been, for centuries, one of the most important staple foods for millions of poor rural people in the semiarid tropics of Asia and Africa. For some impoverished regions of the world, sorghum remains a principal source of energy, protein, vitamins and minerals. Sorghum grows in harsh environments where other crops do not grow well, just like other staple foods, such as cassava, that are common in impoverished regions of the world.
