Discovering the Promise of Sweet Sorghum to the Environment

Sweet sorghum is a corn-like plant that has a grain on top. It naturally grows at a height as tall as 8 to 12 feet. In line with rice, corn, and barley, sorghum tends to be the fifth largest grain in the world.

 

The good thing about it is that sorghum can be highly beneficial to the environment. Sweet sorghums are one of the most important components in the production of biogas, biofuel, and novel polymer. In addition to that, sweet sorghum is a big help in the replacement of phosphate fertilizers.

In general, sorghum grows in marginal land in which crop cultivation is highly difficult. This is due to the purpose of elimination of competition with other forage crops.

 

Sweet Sorghum New Variety

The KIT1 is the new variety of sweet sorghum in which it gathers specific elevated amounts of sugar. And on temperate conditions, this crop thrives really well. According to the experts at Industrial Crops and Products,

The plant vessel structure highly determines the transport and accumulation of sugar.

The said outcome had been sourced out from the comparative analysis among sweet and grain sorghums. Through the energetic aspect, this crop is generally advantageous in biogas and biofuel production.
