By Jackie Linden | July 5, 2019. In the Philippines, San Carlos Bioenergy has produced its first batch of ethanol from sweet sorghum in their San Carlos City plant. Bright Future? The development of sweet sorghum grains as complementary to corn grains as feed raw material may help raise the Philippines ’ poultry and livestock sector’s competitiveness through cost reduction. These stages are suggested as standards to describe the timing of sampling or treating sorghum. Sweet sorghum is any of the many varieties of the sorghum grass whose stalks have a high sugar content. Sweet sorghum seeds being formally handed over to Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, President of the Philippines, by APJ Kalam, President of India. Niño, Bohol). It is concluded that the effects of each factor of year, harvest time, and genotype on biomass, carbohydrates yield, and CEY are highly significant. Aboveground dry weight (AGDW) and total soluble sugar yield (TSSY, 1.3–10.5 t ha−1) increased with time after anthesis and with crop cycle length. According to the professor heading the project, Rex Demafelis, the company was able to produce 247 liters of fuel grade ethanol for every ton of sorghum syrup. Other flours failed to meet the minimum protein content of 8.5%. Sweet sorghums (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench) are sorghum varieties that accumulate high levels of sucrose in the parenchyma juicy stems. All rights reserved. The outlined improvement should produce benefits that include: (1) genetic improvement of a biomass crop with significantly reduced overall cost of biomass-to-ethanol conversion; (2) selection of a reliable bioenergy feedstock that is drought tolerant, inexpensive to grow, environmentally friendly and cultivated in nearly all temperate and tropical climate regions; (3) expansion of the production area for bioenergy crops by developing cold tolerance germplasm and hybrids and by offering both annual and perennial sweet sorghum types; and (4) reduction in cell wall lignin for improved efficiency in production of biofuels. It that can be cultivated for simultaneous production of grain for food or feed, and utilisation of juice from stalk in production of value-added products like syrup and ethanol. There was a large degree of independency between grain and stover yields, suggesting that sweets sorghum can provide both grain and fodder yield. and abiotic stresses, breeding, agronomic management, post-harvest According to the Celiac Sprue Association, it is an appropriate and gluten-free flour substitute. Excellent genetic and genomic resources exist for improvement of sorghum as a bioenergy source. Sorghum is suitable for human consumption and the grain can easily be processed into flour and starch, ... Over the past decade, world sorghum production has risen from 60 to 65 million metric tons (US Grains Council 2013) with the United States, Argentina and Australia as top exporters, accounting to 93 to 97 percent of total world exports. What’s more, once ethanol has been extracted, sorghum can be used as a nutritious animal feed. Based on the results, it was identified that the feedstock composition criterion was given a higher weight over the economic criterion. The most active countries have strong biofuels programs including Brazil and the Philippines. The grain of sorghum is a good source of energy and protein. The differences in stover fodder quality traits were significant: nitrogen content ranged from 0.44 to 0.72% in hybrids and from 0.50 to 0.89% in varieties while in vitro digestibility ranged from 43.8 to 54.5% in hybrids and from 48.8 to 54.8% in varieties. These are NTJ 02, SPV 422, ICSV 93046, CSR 93034, and ICSV 700. Transportation costs are found to be significant ranging from $33 to $71 Mg (-1) FC, with highest costs associated with at-plant ensilage scenarios.

Moench] coffee substitute: Agricultural Residue Feedstock Selection for Polyhydroxyalkanoates Production using AHP-GRA, Mining Genetic Diversity of Sorghum as a Bioenergy Feedstock, Effect of Micronutrient Treatments in Main and Ratoon Crops of Sweet Sorghum Cultivar ICSV 93046 Under Tropical Conditions, Sweet sorghum for biofuel and strategies for its improvement, Application GGE biplot and AMMI model to evaluate sweet sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) hybrids for genotype × environment interaction and seasonal adaptation, Blümmel M, Rao SS, Palaniswami S, Shah L and Reddy BVS. The sweet sorghum planting started on January 18 to 23 in five municipalities: La Paz, Concepcion, Magalang Echague and Bani. Sweet Sorghum’s Advantages Sweet sorghum in India costs $1.74 to produce a gallon of ethanol, compared with $2.19 for sugarcane and $2.12 for corn. The stalk yield was highest for treatments T5 and T6 in main crop and in the ratoon crop however, the treatment T4 recorded the highest stalk yield. The crop is mostly unknown in the country and is now being developed as a key item to address food security. A wide variety of sorghum supplier options are available to you, such as none, egypt, and germany. The sweet sorghum variety, ICSV 93046 is commercially cultivated in large areas in India and the Philippines. Results showed that the chemical properties of Philippine made sorghum flour were within the limits set by Codex Standard 173-1989 for sorghum flour prodcution. Juice extract yields from the stems were not significantly related to grain yields. Sweet Sorghum in the Philippines: Status and Future chronicles sweet sorghum’s introduction, testing and selection, seed system development, growth of the local breeding program besides the process of sensitizing government organizations and private sector players to the issue of biofuels. Philippines envoy visits ICRISAT sweet sorghum field. besides the role of ICRISAT in sweet sorghum research, development and The results showed that roasting time of the grains had a significant effect on the sensory characteristics and acceptability of the SSCS brew while powder to water ratio and brewing time have no effect. The produced flours were categorized as follows: a) undehulled sorghum flour (USF), b) untempered-dehulled sorghum flour (UDSF), c) tempered-dehulled sorghum flour (TDSF) and d) boiled-dehulled sorghum flour (BDSF). Roasting sweet sorghum grains for 70 min at 226±5 o C and brewing using the powder to water ratio of 16 g/ 250 mL -1 for 3 min produced the most acceptable sample with characteristic dark brown color, aroma and flavor resembling "rice coffee", and coffee-like bitterness. The color of the flour has an impact on sensory perception and was observed that the darker the flour, the more it becomes undesirable. The stems comprised major sinks of soluble sugar, with 79.4–94.6% of TSSY, and major sinks of insoluble sugar, with 55.9–75.9% of the total cellulose and hemicellulose yield. PCARRD, this lucid and comprehensive publication is a valuable source Sweet sorghum pureline-SPV 422 was planted and evaluated at one cropping season at different trial sites with a total land area of 7 hectares. Humanity already possesses the fundamental scientific, technical, and industrial know-how to solve the carbon and climate Combined with petrol or diesel, ethanol can be used as ‘gasohol’ — a fuel that is considerably less polluting than conventional ones. School of Electronics and Computer Science, Monograph The status of national research programmes and public and private sector collaborations aimed at enhancing ethanol production processes and technology in India is also described. The sweet sorghum variety, ICSV 93046 is commercially cultivated in large areas in India and the Philippines. The palatability of bagasse and stripped leaves to cattle was investigated by incorporation of the distillery residues of one sweet sorghum variety into a commercial feed block, replacing the traditionally used (non sweet) sorghum stover. stakeholders in the Philippines and in other countries as well. Maria, Ilocos Sur; and Sto. Philippines trials sorghum, soy cultivation for feed. Sweet sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is similar to grain sorghum with sugar-rich stalks. It will serve as an important source of Key properties of different types of diets vis a vis livestock feed. Copyright © . Documentation. years and limit atmospheric CO2 to a trajectory that avoids a doubling of the preindustrial concentration. Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 10, 1977, resulted in a slight improvement in gain and an improved feed efficiency. The present findings suggest that the three products have different potential applications and are suitable for making sauces, thickeners and pastries. In terms of color, the lightness of the Philippine sorghum flour and starch (86-92 L*value) were comparable to rice and corn while cassava flour and starch products were the lightest. The practice of phytoremediation is suggested for lands contaminated with heavy metals (HMs) as it helps to preserve natural physical and biological properties of soil. So are the future scenario and public-private partnerships Sweet sorghum is an annual crop, and plants can reach heights of 12 to 14 feet. The sweet sorghum hybrid — called SSH 104 — is rich in sugar that can be easily converted into ethanol. of information on the genesis and progress of sweet sorghum research MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Agriculture (DA) wants to propagate sweet sorghum, a grain crop used as raw material for feeds, amid tight … multilocation trials conducted across the country, screening for biotic Sweet Sorghum projects in the Philippines (funded by DA-BAR) in October 2009. It can also be used to make alcoholic beverages, flour, flatbread and snack foods. CANDABA, Pampanga, Philippines—Test farming of sweet sorghum in the last six years showed crop production in the Philippines to be 50 percent higher than in India, increasing the crop’s potential as a source of food, fodder and fuel in local communities, according to a top crop scientist. This study also revealed that SSCS could be a potential health and nutritious beverage as its powder provides energy from carbohydrates and protein, is low in fat particularly saturated fat, contains essential fatty acids, and has dietary fiber. (123.0 lbs.) Sweet sorghum can help meet the country's fuel needs without compromising our food supply," said Dr. William D. Dar, director general of the India-based International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), the international R&D center that brought the crop the Philippines. Moreover, SSCS powder contains phytochemicals, such as phenols particularly flavonoids, which contribute to its high antioxidant activity. Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. Sweet sorghum has been used for producing sugar, fermenting, and making forage. Samplings often are designated by calendar date, days after planting or emergence, or plant height. Related studies such as economic and life cycle analyses, as well as process improvement, may also be incorporated with the results of this study to provide comprehensive information on selecting a suitable feedstock for sustainable PHA production. . Pigs fed wheat with 4% fat added showed The greatest improvement in daily gain and feed efficiency. These findings suggest that, in general, SSCS could be a beneficial in preventing diseases involving oxidative stress and chronic diseases. Series of technical discussions and plantation tours shaped the said summit. GRA showed that corn stover was the most preferred lignocellulosic substrate for PHA production, followed Therefore, a standard set of growth stages needs to be defined. The pasting profile of the three products were significantly different from each other with unmodified sorghum starch having very high peak, trough and final viscosities while the acidmodified starch showed the least values and the sorghum flour being the middle of the two. This result was confirmed by both process economics and analysis of opportunity costs. sweet sorghum’s introduction, testing and selection, seed system Sweet sorghum has caught the attention of researchers, farmers Reddy, B V S and Layaoen, H and Dar, W D and Srinivasa Rao, P and Eusebio, J E As a solution, lignocellulosic agricultural residues can be used as feedstock to lower the production cost. of policies to encourage production of combustible fuels from plants that triggered public and private investments in bio-fuel ICRISAT-bred sweet sorghum hybrid ICSSH 58 (ICSA 731 x ICSV 93046). (Right) Sweet sorghum vinegar on display. Despite relatively high transport costs, seasonal, fresh processed sweet sorghum is found to produce FC at costs competitive with corn grain derived FC. Prospects of enhancing the genetic potential of sweet sorghum through various plant breeding strategies are discussed. m. lot. Additionally, conversion efficiency was ranked first in terms of the overall weights of all the criteria, followed by cellulose content and processing cost. Although Based on detailed studies of grain sorghum hybrids of different maturities, the following ten stages of development have been defined and illustrated: emergence, three-leaf, five-leaf, growing-point, differentiation, final leaf visible in whorl, boot, half-bloom, soft dough, hard dough, and physiological maturity. A wide range of plant growth-promoting (PGP) microbes such as Rhizobium, Pseudomonas, and Bacillus are reported not only to enhance the plant growth but also to alleviate the stress caused by HMs in plant. Sweet sorghum is a multipurpose biofuel feedstock that offers grain for human consumption, fodder for livestock and ethanol for transportation purposes. Previous research (Bennett, A.S., Anex, R.P., 2008. (2011) It has found limited use, however, because of poor post-harvest storage characteristics and short harvest window in cooler climates. reference to researchers, students, entrepreneurs, policymakers and other Thus, a flexible plant capable of making both sugar and fuel-ethanol from the juice is recommended. We expect a huge impact on biomass yield, quality, and conversion efficiency with appropriate plant breeding and biotechnology tools in order to develop energy sorghum germplasm that allows highly efficient production of biofuel. However, it was suggested that small farmers adopt a cropping system which rotates sweet sorghum with pigeon peas at a ratio of 3:1. and development in the Philippines. It can be planted and managed using the same equipment typically used in row crop production. 9: 1-10, Biomass yield and changes in chemical composition of sweet sorghum cultivars grown for biofuel, Bio-Fuel Crops Research for Energy Security and Rural Development in Developing Countries, Sweet sorghum—A potential alternate raw material for bio-ethanol and bio-energy, Stabilization Wedges: Solving the Climate Problem for the Next 50 Years with Current Technologies, Refining sweet sorghum to ethanol and sugar: economic trade-offs in the context of North China, Growth Stages of Sorghum [Sorghum bicolor, (L.) Moench. It has an estimated average … We conclude that sweet sorghum can provide food (grain), fodder (bagasse/leaf residues) and bio-ethanol at the same time. is known as Swine Day, 1977 One hundred eight crossbred, weaned pigs averaging 10.0ks (22.1 lbs.) There were no significant differences in average daily gain or feed efficiency among pigs fed sorghum, corn, or wheat with no added fat; and adding 4 % fat to, Bright Future? It has high positive energy balance, producing about 8 units of energy for every unit of energy invested in its cultivation and production, roughly equivalent to sugarcane but four times more than for corn. The seeds were planted on March 5 on a 2,500 sq. development, growth of the local breeding program besides the process were used to compare rations containing sorghum, corn, or wheat with 0 or 4% added fat (tallow) on performance of young pigs. Reducing the use of non-renewable fossil energy reserves together with improving the environment are two important reasons that drive interest in the use of bioethanol as an automotive fuel. Sweet sorghum seeds being formally handed over to Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, President of the Philippines, by APJ Kalam, President of India. In the Philippines, the high demand of ethanol for blending with petrol (gasoline) with sweet sorghum as biofuel source has necessitated large-scale production of this crop (. Sorghum requires less water and can survive in dry weather. 2009. Five promising dual and sweet stalk sorghum cultivars from ICRISAT selected for further evaluation in the Philippines. There was no statistical difference in intake (DMI) and live weight gain (LWG) between bulls fed the bagasse plus stripped leaf based blocks (DMI of 3.7% of live weight and 0.73 kg/d of LWG) and bulls fed the original sorghum stover based commercial feed block (DMI of 3.5% of live weight and 0.82 kg/d of LWG). Sweet sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) is a C4 crop in the grass family, and is characterized by a high photosynthetic efficiency. Its characteristics of rapid growth, higher biomass potential, wider adaptability to harsh agroclimatic conditions, along with its metal-absorbing property, are propelling the use of this novel feedstock in phytoremediation also. Commercialization and marketing and the ethanol industry outlook are To systematically determine the best agricultural residue for PHA production, this study employed the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Grey Relational Analysis (GRA). no element is a credible candidate for doing the entire job (or even half the job) by itself, the portfolio as a whole is To date, 13 diseases are reported to occur on sorghum, of which Phyllachora tar spot, leaf blights (Exserohilum turcicum) and grey leaf spot (Cercospora sorghi) are the most important. Sensitivity analysis also proved that corn stover is an excellent feedstock candidate, particularly if conversion efficiency and processing cost criteria are given higher weights. Data on sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench) flour production process and utilization in the Philippines is very few. Efforts by national organizations like DA-BAR, MMSU, DOST, PCARRD and SUCs in making research and development programs fully operational in the Philippines with ICRISAT’s support have borne fruit. is known as Swine Day, 1977 Seventy-two crossbred finishing pigs averaging 55.9 kg. MANILA, Philippines (Xinhua) - Sweet sorghum is emerging as an alternative and cheaper feed for the growing Philippine livestock industry that has long depended on imported corn and wheat. As in the U.S., projects are still in precommercial scale, usually incorporating sweet sorghum into existing sugarcane operations. After the success of the 1st Sweet Sorghum Business Summit and Plantation Showcase held in June 2011, the Department of Agriculture - Bureau of Agricultural Research (DA-BAR) and the Biofuels Research Team led by Professor Rex B. Demafelis of the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) together with Dr. Heraldo L. Layaoen of the Mariano Marcos State University (MMSU), went … Eighteen hybrids and 16 varieties of sweet sorghum were investigated for yields of grain, stover, juice extract for bio-ethanol distillation and bagasse and the relationships between these productive traits. The sweet sorghum has been proven to be technically and economically viable alternative feedstock for bioethanol production in the Philippine setting. Adding 4% fat (to each grain ration). losses, utilization, by-product development and capacity building. On the island of Mindanao in the Philippines, production of sorghum is being trialed to supplement domestic corn for livestock feeds, and tests are also underway to improve soybean cultivation. Monte Carlo simulation and sensitivity analysis are used to account for system variability and compare scenarios. The plantation, agronomic performance and actual bioethanol production of sweet sorghum was evaluated on different plantation sites nationwide. Overall, ethanol production from sorghum bagasse appears very favorable, but other agricultural residues such as corn stover and rice hulls would likely provide a more attractive feedstock for making ethanol in the medium and long term due to their extensive availability in North China and their independence from other markets. Farm-gate production costs of sweet sorghum as a bioethanol feedstock. The 12 SSCS brewed samples were subjected to sensory evaluation composed of 55 untrained coffee drinker panelist. Both the developed and developing countries have developed a range A wheat acreage response function was estimated for Kansas using the Generalized Method of Moments (GMM). Differences in in vitro digestibility of bagasse plus stripped leaves were also substantial, ranging from 39.3 to 49.1% in hybrids and from 42.0 to 50.4% in varieties. The hybrids exhibited higher TSSY, cellulose, hemicellulose and grain yield, and therefore also CEY than the inbred cultivars with a similar crop cycle length. Being a water-use efficient crop, sweet sorghum has the potential to be a good alternative feedstock for ethanol production. Sorghum is a drought-tolerant rainfed crop that requires about 30 % less nitrogen fertilizer than corn to produce equal amount of ethanol per acre under non-irrigated conditions. increasing the farmers’ incomes, reducing environment pollution, the crop options and research and development interventions This investigation was carried out in order to evaluate changes in biomass, carbohydrates, and calculated ethanol yield (CEY) from anthesis to 40 days after anthesis (DAA) of five sweet sorghum (Sorghum biocolor (L.) Moench) cultivars with a crop cycle length of 111–165 days in Beijing (39°56′N, 116°20′E). Conversion of sugar and starch to ethanol has been proven at an industrial scale in Brazil and the United States, respectively, and this alcohol has been able to compete with conventional gasoline due to various incentives. International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics. Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station Research Reports, the rations did not affect gain but did result in a slight improvement in feed/gain. Sweet Sorghum in the Philippines: Status and Future. In this paper, we examined making ethanol from the sugar extracted from the juice of sweet sorghum and/ or from the hemicellulose and cellulose in the residual sorghum bagasse versus selling the sugar from the juice or burning the bagasse to make electricity in four scenarios in the context of North China. worldwide interest in the production and use of bio-fuels. A total of eight harvest-transport-processing options are modeled, including 4-row self-propelled and 2-row tractor-pulled forage harvesters, two different modes of in-field transport, fresh processing, on-farm ensilage and at-plant ensilage. Chemical analyses showed that only BDSF have met the standard set by Codex Standard for Sorghum Flour (Codex 173-1989). In this article, we discuss the potential benefits of bio-fuels in the issue of biofuels. Internationally, sweet sorghum projects are proceeding slowly. In the Philippines, sugarcane is considered a primary source for ethanol production. 2004, sweet sorghum was successfully introduced and tested in the Philippines. The objective of this study was to develop an acceptable, nutritious, and healthful coffee substitute from sweet sorghum grains. developing countries. the laboratory bench and demonstration project; many are already implemented somewhere at full industrial scale. Evaluation of sweet sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) used for bio-ethanol production in the context of optimizing whole plant utilization. Sweet sorghum belongs to the second type, and it contains some sugars in its sap. Furthermore, the process for residue conversion was based on particular design assumptions, and other technologies could enhance competitiveness while considerations such as perceived risk could impede applications. required to generate feedstocks to produce bio-fuels to meet projected demand without compromising food/fodder security in Sweet sorghum is grown as a syrup or molasses. It also delves into the state-of-the-art on its R&D, The knowledge on sugar components at different phenological stages of crop growth and identification of appropriate stage of harvesting is critical for sweet sorghum commercialization and value chain sustenance. The business summit held in Bacolod City successfully introduced to the participants the potentials of sweet sorghum as a competitive feedstock for bioethanol production and its various uses for the agriculture sector and the industry. Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left. They were found to have high content of juice and good grain yield when tested at the … This will result in a harvest period of around two months until grain maturity of the late cultivars for ethanol production in North China. The plantation, agronomic performance, and actual bioethanol production of sweet sorghum have been evaluated on different plantation sites nationwide. Join ResearchGate to find the people and research you need to help your work. The combined ANOVA showed that there were no significant differences observed between main and ratoon crops and the treatment interactions for the qualitative and quantitative component traits of sugar yield measured and also no significant differences observed for main and ratoon crop except for non-significant numerical differences giving a trend. of sensitizing government organizations and private sector players to The National Sweet Sorghum Program (NSSP) is consolidating investments for a 500 to 1,000-hectare land for sweet sorghum as bioethanol feedstock which has a … The sweet sorghum growers are enthusiastic as the ratoon (new shoot) yields are about 20-25% higher than that of plant crop. Community Watershed Community watershed (CW) activities started in 2005 in four sites (Doña Remedios Trinidad, Bulacan; San Clemente, Tarlac; Sta. Animal Nutrition and Feed Technology. (Documentation). Usually sorghum with over 8 °BX of sugar in the juice is called sweet sorghum. Sweet sorghum plantation in the Philippines. The hybrid sweet sorghum variety seeds used was part of the seeds distributed by DA Secretary Emmanuel F. Piñol to the DA Regional Offices during the first Sorghum Field Day at North Cotabato. The production of the sorghum grains exceed the yield/hectare/year of rice since it can be planted in 3 cropping seasons as compared to rice's 2 cropping seasons. The government sees it as the most reliable feedstock due to its well-established farming technologies and the highest yield per hectare compared to other feedstock (corn, cassava, and sweet sorghum). also discussed. Overview Sweet sorghum is similar to grain sorghum but accumulates sugary juice in its stalk. The stable hybrid, based on additive main effects and multiplicative interaction (AMMI) and GGE biplot analysis that performed well across seasons and over the years for grain yield and stalk sugar yield is: 'ICSSH 28'. For one, the San Carlos Bioenergy, Inc. in San Carlos City, Negros Occidental is setting up a bioenergy processing plant, for which sweet sorghum will be considered as one of the feedstocks. Water absorption capacities of flour and starch were 145% and 96-103%, respectively.The swelling capacity (2-6%) and solubility (1-3%) were minimal. It is a multipurpose crop, yielding food in the form of grain and fuel in the form of ethanol from its stem juice. were used (in a 3 x 2 factorial design) to compare performance when fed sorghum, corn, or wheat with 0 or 4% added fat (tallow). Sweet sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is similar to grain sorghum with sugar-rich stalks.Being a water-use efficient crop, sweet sorghum has the potential to be a good alternative feedstock for ethanol production. The interaction of genotype with year (environment) has significant effects on the total CEY. by banana pseudostem and sugarcane bagasse. This chapter explores the possibilities of using sweet sorghum with PGP microbes as a phytoremediation tool to alleviate the HM stress and to enhance food-fodder-fuel security. The response of ICSV 93046 to six fertilizer treatments viz., T1 (control: 80 kg N ha−1 and 40 kg P2O5 ha−1); T2 (designed fertilizer from a commercial source); T3 (N + P with Zn and B soil application); T4 (N + P with Zn and B soil application); T5 (N + P with foliar application of 0.1 % sodium borate and T6 (N + P with foliar application of 0.5 % ZnSO4 and 0.1 % sodium borate) was evaluated during the post-rainy season (December–March, 2009–2010) as main (plant) crop and during summer season (April–July, 2010) as ratoon crop.
