Energy cane varieties are high-fiber sugarcane clones which represent a promising feedstock in the production of alternative biofuels and biobased products. This study explored the crop establishment and whole farm production costs of growing energy cane as a biofuel feedstock in the southeastern USA. More specifically, total production costs on a feedstock(More)
Sweet sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) is currently recognized throughout the world as a highly promising biomass energy crop. Production systems and management practices for sweet sorghum have not been fully developed for the USA, although sporadic research efforts during recent decades have provided some insights into production of sweet sorghum(More)
In sugarcane breeding, visual appraisal is used to select for cane yield among seedlings (Stage I) and non-replicated clonal plots (Stage II). Genotype by environment interaction and interplot competition reduces selection efficiency. Although path coefficient analysis studies identified important yield components for indirect selection, currently there is(More)
