Abstract

A review of literature on nonstructural and structural carbohydrate contents in sorghum is presented. This review describes the influence of temperature, maturity, genotype, culm section, spacing, and fertilization on nonstructural carbohydrate contents. The starch properties and the chief criteria of sorghum malt quality are discussed. Differences in structural carbohydrate contents in leaves and stems are reported.
