- ... The experiments comprised three vegetation periods of five sorghum varieties. Novel data on the development of biomass yield, maturity level and biogas production were gained. Dry matter (DM) biomass yield ranged between 15.7 and 20.67 t ha−1 when sorghum was grown as main crop. The variety SOR 4 achieved a methane yield of 6500 m3 ha−1. The suitability of different sorghum varieties as summer cat ...
