Recently introduced forage and energy sorghums (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench) have potential as cellulosic biofuel feedstocks in the Midwest. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effect of N fertilization on biomass yield and to determine the relationship between biomass yield and plant height, leaf development, and leaf area index (LAI) on two forage and two energy sorghum hybrids in four central and southern Illinois (IL) environments. Sorghum hybrids were evaluated in Urbana in… CONTINUE READING
