Malibu Sweet Sorghum

Named for the city where the company was founded, NexSteppe’s Malibu sweet sorghum hybrids have been optimized to provide an easily accessible source of fermentable sugars for the production of advanced biofuels and biobased products. Malibu sweet sorghums can be used as a complement to sugarcane to provide additional feedstock for existing sugar-to-ethanol mills.

Our first generation of Malibu sweet sorghum hybrids is designed to provide a wide range of maturities to meet varying customer harvest-window profiles. Several of these hybrids were also selected for their yield performance in tropical short day-length environments to help enable year-round production.
