The plants are cultivated in warm climates worldwide and naturalized in many places.

White Sorghum is efficient in converting solar energy to chemical energy, and also uses less water compared to other grain crops. Biofuel, using sweet sorghum as a high sugar content from its stalk for ethanol production, is being developed with biomass which can be turned into Charcoal, Syngas and Bio-oil.
