    United States, sweet sorghum has historically been and is cur-rently used for syrup production. However, interest in sweet sor-ghum as a feedstock for ethanol production is increasing (Rooney et al., ). Unlike hybrid grain sorghum, current U.S. sweet sorghum varieties are . In the photo: Sorghum syrup. In sorghum, the production of sugars present in the stem per day of cultivation is now considered the highest (per ha) among all sugar production crops: in 4 – 5 months, sorghum produces as much sugar or even more than sugarcane in a whole year.

    MS. Many sweet sorghum varieties that exist today were developed from six African landraces, MN, MN, MN, MN, MN, and MN (Murray et al., ). Based on pedigree information from modern sweet sorghum varieties, there appears to be low diversity within, and high genetic similarity between, sweet sorghum lines. Sorghum Variety Trials Grain Sorghum Each year, performance trials for hybrid grain sorghum are conducted by the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service to provide producers, extension educators, industry representatives, and researchers with information for hybrid grain sorghums marketed in .

    Syrup from Sweet Sorghum Paperback – Octo by William V. Cruess (Author) out of 5 stars 1 rating5/5(1). AN EVALUATION OF SORGHUM SYRUP PROCESSING OPERATIONS IN TENNESSEE INTRODUCTION Sorghum has been grown for grain and animal feed for many centu-ries. However, production of sorghum for the purpose of making syrup is a relatively recent practice which did not begin in the United States until the late 's.

States since colonial days. Some sweet sorghum syrup has at one time or another been produced in every one of the contiguous 48 states. Sweet sorghum is grown extensively for syrup production in the southeastern states. Kentucky is one of eight states in the Southeast and Midwest producing about 90% of the total U.S.

Size: KB. We did work with some new sweet sorghum varieties: ME, Dale, and Topper. The work we did was in slightly wetter more humid climates than you Louisiana, Florida, and Tennessee. Yet, they were all pretty drought resistant during the summer drought.

Sweet Sorghum: From Theory to Practice P. Srinivasa Rao, C. Ganesh Kumar and Belum V. Reddy Abstract Sweet sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is a multipurpose crop (food, feed, fodder and fuel) that has the potential as an alternative biofuel feed-stock without impacting food and fodder security.

This chapter entitled ‘‘Sweet. Sweet sorghum is a corn-like plant that can grow as high as an elephant's eye on some of Earth's Sweet-stem sorghum has been grown for more than a century in the southeastern United States Kurt Nolte is an area agriculture agent with the Yuma County Cooperative File Size: KB.

“Sweet sorghum” is the moniker used to categorize the unique varieties chosen for molasses-making that have more stalk juice and sugars than the forage or grain sorghum varieties do. Grain from the head of the sorghum plant is saved for seed. Sweet sorghum is any of the many varieties of the sorghum grass whose stalks have a high sugar content.

Sweet sorghum thrives better under drier and warmer conditions than many other crops and is grown primarily for forage, silage, and syrup production. Although, in most of the United States the term molasses refers to a sweet syrup, made as a byproduct of sugarcane or sugar beet sugar.

Sweet sorghum belongs to the Sorghum bicolor L. Moench species (Harlan & de Wet, ). The genus Sorghum belongs to the tribe Andropogoneae of the family Poaceae. Sweet sorghum and the other cultivated species have a chromosome number of n = 10 and is primarily self-pollinated with about 2 to 5% cross-pollination.

Production of sweet sorghum currently practiced in the mountains is very labor intensive. Sugar Drip, the most widely grown variety locally produces a good quality syrup; however, this variety produces relatively low yields, and is very susceptible to most sorghum diseases, particularly stalk red rot.

We plan to evaluate the potential of sweet sorghum as an ethanol-producing crop for Nebraska. Sweet sorghum is a perennial crop in areas that don't have a winter freeze. Plant breeding efforts continue to improve the cold tolerance of sorghum for growth in the Midwest.

In the Corn Belt, sweet sorghum grows 10 to 15 feet tall during a growing. Of the few southern states known for producing sorghum, North Carolina is still standing strong. Here in Western North Carolina, the tradition of making sorghum syrup is being kept alive by a handful of old-timers and homesteaders with access to antique cane mills and plenty of helping hands.

Much like the culture of maple sugaring, making [ ]. Ronni Lundy’s book, Sorghum’s Savor, celebrates the sweet amber syrup. (Photo: Special to the Citizen-Times) During Reconstruction, the flow of. New Sorghum bicolor variety TOP, released inwas selected from the F2 progeny of the emasculated cross Mer.

× Brandes and the progeny were advanced the using pedigree breeding method. Panicles are erect and semicompact while seeds are white with a corneous endosperm.

TOP is similar to Dale and Bailey in maturity but is normally shorter and resistant to by: 4. Historian David Shields notes that bysweet sorghum cane was being grown acr acres of the United States, from Minnesota to Georgia. However, growers who envisioned sorghum cane spawning a sugar industry soon discovered that when heated, sorghum produced a sweet syrup, as sugar cane did, but it was unreliable as a source of crystals.

Sorghum is a sweet, dark, heavy syrup made by cooking the juice squeezed from sorghum cane. Sorghum is a tall cane that looks similar to field corn and makes a cone-shaped seed head filled with BB.

Adaptability and stability of sweet sorghum cultivars Crop Breeding and Applied BiotechnologyThe Annicchiarico () method is based on analysis of variance, and stands out because it is of easy use. This method is based on the estimation of a risk index recom-mendation of using certain cultivar.

For that, genotypicCited by:   THE MANUFACTURE OF SORGHUM SIRUP. DEFINITIONS. The word "sorghum" has a double meaning. It is the name of a cane-producing race of plants, and it is also often used as the name of the sirup which is produced from sorghum canes.

To avoid confusion, the words "sorghum plant" and "sorghum sirup" are sometimes used instead of " sorghum."Author: A. Denton. Most of sweet sorghum variety is with low grain weight per spike and grain yield. There is a significantly negative relation ship between grain yield and stalk sugar (Cao, Junfeng, ).

A few sweet sorghum variety is with high grain weight per spike and grain yield. This is a sweet sorghum cum forage variety released by the University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad. It produces stalk yield of t ha-1 t ha with a Brix of % CSV 24SS A new sweet sorghum variety CSV 24SS was recommended for notification and release as a central variety by the 60th Meeting of Central Sub-Committee.

Harvesting stage of sweet sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench) cane is an important aspect in the content of sugar for production of industrial alcohol. Four sweet sorghum genotypes were evaluated for harvesting stage in a randomized complete block design.

In order to determine sorghum harvest growth stage for bioethanol production, sorghum canes were harvested at intervals of seven days after Cited by: 4. The United States exports more sorghum than any other country, and most of it comes from the South.

The grain is used for cattle feed, flour (increasingly popular with the gluten-free set) and. Several illustrations are signed: "P.
