The main objective of this paper is to examine the relationship between sorghum prices and markets integration in Sudan. Other objective is to check the presence or absence of causality between the cointegrated markets if any present. In this study, monthly sorghum prices for a period of years from 2002 to 2010 for eight markets in different parts of Sudan were tested spatially; A group of five markets in peaceful regions linked with a net of paved roads and shared good trade information flow were tested in addition to three markets in western Sudan, where poor infrastructures and political strife prevails as a result of civil conflicts.
