This manual provides training for technicians in the techniques of growing and managing sweet sorghum as well as its processing and livestock feeding; and for local farmers in rural areas of China with typical arid and saline-alkaline characteristics, where traditional summer crops such as maize and cotton are failing through lack of water or excess salinity and alkalinity. The booklet offer demonstrations of the growing and different utilizations of improved, new varieties (or hybrids). Precisely, sweet sorghum can be used for many purposes: grain is used as food, juice for producing alcohol; stalks are used as silage or fodder; the fiber of the stalks is one of the best materials for making high quality paper, etc.
