Screening of Sweet Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) Varieties for Sugar and Biomass Production

  title={Screening of Sweet Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) Varieties for Sugar and Biomass Production},
  author={Charles L M Olweny and G. Abayo and Mathews M. Dida and Patrick Okori},
  journal={Sugar Tech},
Sweet sorghum has elicited the interest of breeders due to its capacity to provide renewable energy products, industrial commodities, food and animal feed. Whereas the technologies to process sugar products from sweet sorghum exits, the constraints for its large scale cultivation are the limited availability of genotypes suited to different agro-climatic conditions in Sub-Sahara Africa. Eighteen varieties obtained from ICRISAT, Kenya Agricultural Research Institute, Argentina and United States… CONTINUE READING
