Working with Farmers and Landowners to grow Giant Miscanthus grass GREENSBORO, N.C., April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- GREENSBORO, N.C.
GREENSBORO, N.C., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- North Carolina farmers and landowners are participating in a unique program from Greensboro-based REPREVE® RENEWABLES to grow giant miscanthus
An article featured in the journal Invasive Plant Science and Management reports on the results of field tests on the fertile “PowerCrane” line of giant miscanthus.
A team of University of Georgia researchers report that they have mapped the genomes of two originator cells of a type of perennial grass said to be a natural candidate for biomass farming -- work that reportedly could lead to improved ethanol and/or bioenergy crops.
Concerns about the worldwide energy supply and national, environmental and economic security have resulted in a search for alternative energy sources.
Research into biofuel crops such as switchgrass and Miscanthus has focused mainly on how to grow these crops and convert them into fuels. But many steps lead from the farm to the biorefinery, and each could help or hinder the growth of this new industry.
An article in the current issue of Global Change Biology Bioenergy examines the carbon sequestration potential of Miscanthus plantations on commercial farms.
An article in the current issue of Global Change Biology Bioenergy finds that natural populations of Miscanthus are promising candidates as second-generation energy sources because they have genetic variation that may increase their stress tolerance.
University of Illinois research reports that several herbicides used on corn also have good selectivity to Miscanthus x giganteus (Giant Miscanthus), a potential bioenergy feedstock.
