    Becky is holding a head of sorghum that is affected by a fungus called locally ebune, which renders the crop useless. There appears to be a lot of this during the current season and it is probably related to the late onset of rain. The result is a crop that looks from a distance to be relatively good but, which on closer inspection can be seen to be next to useless.
