Book Description: 
There is a worldwide trend for the sustainability of cultures and the optimal production of food and a source of renewable energy. The culture of sorghum links these two concerns. This book reviews new applications of sorghum based on genetics and biotechnology. This book also covers an overview of the new biotechnological process of sorghum, exploring the new applications as additives and energy sources. This book is a blend of the most up-to-date techniques useful in post-harvest, quality and safety of fruit production. (Imprint: Nova)
