Abstract text This study demonstrates the effect of wastewater irrigation on two different Sorghum varieties, SE1, a fodder crop and SE2, a sugar (fermentation) crop. SE2 showed higher growth in terms of height, number of leaves, total fresh and dry stem weight and percentage Brix. SE1 had higher fresh and dry leaf mass. Potential alcohol and energy content of SE2 was 1.9 times more than SE1.
