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.

The book contains an analysis of the socio-economic impact on HIV/AIDS on rural families in Uganda; it focuses on knowledge, attitude and practice of youth and presents recommendations for Uganda's youth programme. The TCP/UGA/2256 "Strengthening programmes for rural youth and young farmers in Uganda", was designed to revitalize the rural youth programme which has been declining over the past two decades and, given the magnitude of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Uganda, to assess the socio-economic impact of HIV/AIDS on rural families and develop the framework for an HIV/AIDS component for the young farmers programme (YFP).
