The project aimed to demonstrate the technical and financial feasibility of co-cropping sweet sorghum with sugarcane (utilising fallow land) and of utilising sweet sorghum for the production of ethanol and power. A key aspect of the project was to determine the optimal utilisation of machinery and equipment, land and human resources engaged in the sugar industry with a view to enhancing the competitiveness of sugar cane.
