Sweet sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L.) is a type of cultivated sorghums and has been recognized widely as potential alternative source of bio-fuel because of its high fermentable sugar content in the stalk. A substantial variation of dry matter (DM) yield and nutrient uptake information is needed for sweet sorghum genotypes under different climatic and soil conditions. The objectives of this study were (i) to assess the genotypic variation irrespective to dry matter yield and nutrient up take of… 
Root traits and carbon input by sweet sorghum genotypes differs in two climatic conditions
Several sweet sorghum genotypes can be a good source of soil C sequestration under different climatic conditions of Turkey and their lower C input to soil needs to be recognized to ensure a balanced C budget.


Dryland Performance of Sweet Sorghum and Grain Crops for Biofuel in Nebraska
ABSTRACT Sweet sorghum [SS; Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is a potential biofuel crop for the Great Plains. Sweet sorghum was compared with corn [ Zea mays (L.)] and grain sorghum for potential
Planting Sweet Sorghum Under Hot and Dry Climatic Condition for Bioethanol Production
It is more economical to plant sweet sorghum for bio-ethanol production in hot and dry regions of the world because it has higher tolerance to salt and drought compared to sugarcane and corn and is more suitable for fermentation to ethanol.
Nitrogen Use Efficiency among Diverse Sorghum Cultivars
Diverse sorghum cultivars for their ability to cope with limited supplies of N were compared in solution culture and under two levels of limited N avilability in a Nebraska field environment.
Nitrogen Response of Grain Sorghum in Rotation with Soybean
The grain sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] and soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] rotation is the major sorghum production system in Nebraska. Fertilizer N needs for rotations are commonly
Assessment of genetic diversity and relationship among a collection of US sweet sorghum germplasm by SSR markers
Information generated from this study can be used to select parents for hybrid development to maximize the sugar content and total biomass, and development of segregating populations to map genes controlling sugar content in sweet sorghum.
