I've grown small amounts, had an issue with fungus on the grain but the plants live for 2 years or more. Temperatures below 13C at night will reduce yields.
Diversified Food forest maker . Fill every niche and you'll have less weeds (the weeds are the crop too). Fruit, greens, wild harvest, and nuts as staple. Food processing and preservation are key to self self-sufficiency. Never eat a plant without posetive identification and/or consulting an expert.
We grew quite a bit of forage sorghum last year. Produces well, great for livestock and the stalks were sweet when I bit into them. No experience making molasses but I have done some research on the subject. There are presses driven by PTO and the resulting pulp is great animal fodder.

PTO? That's what I write at the end of a page when it isn't obvious one has to turn the page over - Please Turn Over. But that doesn't make sense here
