Everything You Need To Know About Plant Power / Energy Crops

Plant Power & ENERGY CROPS

Theo Krueger, the CEO of KruSwiss Agro spent the past 10 years in the Biogas/Renewable energy business so rolling in the energy crop business to KruSwiss was a natural path. Specializing in growing both food and feedstock varieties throughout the harsh climates of Southeast Asia and Africa, KruSwiss is committed to bring large scale economical farming to the region. We’ve dedicated over 4 years to develop modern farming practices that align with both cultural and climate conditions to ensure food security and bring advanced farming technology to empower farmers.

Proprietary Hybrid Energy Crop

Biologically speaking, our energy plants, function like a ruminant animal. Our energy crop, sorghum, can also be used to increase animal performance. As the developer of the specific sorghum genetics we use, we fully understand the importance of digestive efficiency.  One of the advantages of using a dedicated crop for feedstock is its organic fertilizer by-product that has a full profile of macro and micro plant nutrients, no waste!

Since Southeast Asia imports 70% of its beef and 95% of its milk, our goal is to use excess feedstock production for feeds. The difference in the feed efficiency of our crops versus unfertilized tropical grasses will be significant. Soon, we will be able to replicate performance of more advanced feedlots operations around the world. By constructing feeding operations correctly, we will be able to capture the manure and feed it back into a digester, bringing the production loop in full virtuous circle.
