An overview of the cultivation, harvest, and marketing opportunities of sweet sorghum in North Carolina and the Southeast Sweet sorghum is an attractive annual crop for southeastern farmers as it provides a high yielding source of fermentable sugars and vegetative biomass that can be used in a variety of industrial applications, including developing bioenergy markets. This crop is well-suited for the southeastern U.S. climate as it requires relatively low nutrient inputs, is drought-tolerant…

Evaluation of Sweet Sorghum and Sorghum × Sudangrass Hybrids as Feedstocks for Ethanol Production

Sorghum would need to be harvested not later than 120 DAP so as to not interfere with the planting of sugarcane in these fields, and choice of sorghum type would depend on the conversion process(s) being used at the biorefinery.
