dc.description.abstract Kalir was commonly called "kafir corn" by the farmers of Wabaunsee County, Kansas. Farmers up and down the Mill Creek valley of Wabaunsee County grew kafir in the 1920s and 1930s. Pockets of it, found in most farming operations because of its versatility, were scattered throughout the Flint Hill. From the 1890s through the 1930s kafir's crop cycle planting through harvesting, was an integral part of the year's planning. During the 1940, it rapidly lost ground to milo, a new alternative feed grain to the labor intensive-kafir. en_US
