Abstract: Objective To study the preliminary characteristics and pharmacognostic of Sorghum bicolor (L. ) cereal used as food in some parts of West Africa. Methods The pharmacognosic study involved performing macroscopic and microscopic examination of fresh and dry medicinal plant. The study of physicochemical parameters consisted of the determination of moisture content, total ash and insoluble sulfur in hydrochloric acid. Results The pharmacognosic examination of this plant has revealed morphological examination revealed an annual grass crop height can reach up to 1 m to 5 m high. The cylindrical and solid stem, which is usually erect, carries a terminal inflorescence in a compact panicle. It includes spikelets of one or two bisexual flowers. The micrograph showed many large translucent tissue structures. These are the endocarp, the aleurone layer and the integuments Conclusion pharmacognosic analysis and physico-chemical characteristics can help the pharmacopoeia for the efficient utilization of this plant.
