In the 1970s, sorghum grain was easily found and widely consumed in East Nusa Tenggara (NTT). The constant heat and low rainfall in the area allowed the plant to flourish, making it one of the staple foods in the area.
Rich in carbohydrates, the plant was also able to adapt to changing climate conditions.
But as residents turned to rice within the next three decades, it was swept aside.
