Latest Miscanthus Stories
Recent increases in population and economic growth have increased the demand for land-plant biomass for food, fuel and other purposes, but the supply of leaf, stem, root, fruit and other terrestrial plant-based materials has been hampered by a limit to what can naturally be produced.
If the hottest new plant grown as a biofuel crop is approved based solely on its greenhouse gas emission profile, its potential as the next invasive species may not be discovered until it’s too late.

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.
The first long-term US field trials of Miscanthus x giganteus, a towering perennial grass used in bioenergy production, reveal that its exceptional yields, though reduced somewhat after five years of growth, are still more than twice those of switchgrass (Panicum virgatum), another perennial grass used as a bioenergy feedstock.
Two reports were released this year on the genome of Miscanthus grasses, which are used in gardens, burned for energy and converted into liquid fuels.
Welsh and American researchers have completed the first, most comprehensive high-resolution genetic map of the energy crop miscanthus. The researchers collaborated to create this image and published the results in the current edition of the online journal PLoS One.
