R. Ruggeri, F. Rossini, M.E. Provenzano & I.L.M. Del Puglia
Sweet sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench var. saccharatum) is arousing interest as bioenergy crop because of its versatility, relative drought tolerance, and ability to grow in environmental conditions not suitable for many other crops. The aim of this study was to evaluate sweet sorghum genotypes potential as biofuel feedstock. The experiment was conducted in two growing areas in Europe also to determine the possibility of using the sweet sorghum in cropping systems at high northern...
