Political, environmental and economic concerns have motivated nations to become increasingly interested in renewable sources of energy and bioproducts, such as those obtained from plant biomass.
LSU AgCenter and Texas A&M AgriLife scientists are working together to build a pest management program that will mitigate insect pest and disease damage to bioenergy crops in interaction with conventional crops along the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Sweet sorghum is considered a potential crop for biofuel production in much of the tropical and temperate regions of the world. LSU AgCenter researchers are investigating sweet sorghum, along with energycane, as potential feedstock for biorefining.
