ational Sorghum Producers would like to express its sincere gratitude to NSP Research Director Dr. Jeff Dahlberg for his 11-year tenure of service and

Advisor Bruce Maunder. “Certainly in the past two years, Jeff was critical to the many successes of the newly formed checkoff program.”

NSP CEO Tim Lust said Jeff has been a committ ed employee, passionate about the value and future potential of sorghum.

“Jeff has been an essential member of our team,” Lust said. “He has brought a wealth of knowledge to our staff and the industry as a whole. Though we will miss him, we know this is a great opportunity for Jeff .”

Dahlberg, a world expert on sorghum germplasm, has strengthened many aspects of the commodity through his leadership and participation with the National Sorghum Foundation, the Sorghum Improvement Conference of North America, the Whole Grains Council, and the Sor- ghum and Millet Germplasm Committ ee. He also promoted the growth of NSP’s Sorghum Grower magazine.

Dahlberg expressed his sincere gratitude for the opportuni- ties that NSP has provided him and is eager to continue his career in California.

“It has been a privilege to work for this organization that has been an advocate for sorghum farmers,” Dahlberg said. “The friends I have made among the various boards and here at the offi ce will always be in my heart.

“Sorghum has been and will continue to be a priority crop for me, and I plan to work to introduce more sorghum acres to California. In a state batt ling over water and wanting to lead in renewable energy, sorghum seems a logical step, and I will carry the fi ght forward.”
