For a sustainable industry to flourish, there must be a change in attitude and opinion
regarding the feasibility of bioenergy production as well as a change in knowledge of and
adoption of the best practices. An extension team will provide a series of educational
interventions – face-to-face and virtual – including fields days, field demonstrations and
Demonstrations for early adopter energy cane and sweet sorghum producers will be done by
crop specialists in cooperation with equipment manufacturers.
Industry processing partners will have the advantage of classroom information and
demonstrations from the pilot-scale feedstock processing factory at Audubon Sugar Institute.
In order to evaluate attitudes, opinions, current levels of interest and knowledge regarding
bioenergy production and processing, surveys will be conducted with producers and
processors. The initial surveys in year one of the program will establish baseline attitude
and knowledge data for this project.
