STUDY ON PRODUCTIVE FEATURES OF SWEET SORGHUM HYBRIDS GROWN IN SOUTH WEST OF ROMANIA
The study conducted at the Agricultural Research and Development Caracal, located in South West of Romania emphasizes productivity elements of the crop of sweet sorghum conducted in order to produce biomass.
The new vegetable creations put on the market, indigenous or foreign, are characterized by different productive capacity caused by productivity elements which have different contribution to the formation of biomass: stalks, leaves and panicles.
For industrial processing to obtain sweet syrup, which subsequently is the raw material for the production of biofuels, stalks and their percentage contribution to the formation of production are extremely important.
Through this study we tried to test a number of 11 hybrids of sorghum with different backgrounds, analyzing the component values that form the point of view of total green mass production, focusing on the contribution of stalks.
