To support the program’s launch, the Kansas Grain Sorghum Commission (KGSC) and the Sorghum Checkoff each provide $2 million, made in annual payments of $200,000 for 10 years. The Kansas Department of Agriculture provides $20,000 per year for 10 years, and K-State will invest $800,000, for a total of $5 million. Further partnerships are sought to expand the pursuit of the center’s vision for sorghum advancement.
With board approval, and comparable investment, industry partners are eligible for board seat. CSIP further collaborates with researchers to develop concepts for application to competitive funding opportunities.
The KGSC investment is directed to a foundation account to provide for an additional ten years of program investment following the initial decade.
CSIP was launched by an investment from the Sorghum Checkoff, Kansas Grain Sorghum, Kansas State Research and Extension, and joined by the Kansas Department of Agriculture
