Recent studies report that corn hybrids released in the late 2000s, especially Bt hybrids, require higher seeding rates than commercial hybrids released in the 1990s to reach maximum yields.
Research has revealed the 20th century decline in the Irish hare population is almost certainly associated with changes in farming practices.
University of Illinois plant geneticist Stephen Moose has developed a corn plant with enormous potential for biomass, literally. It yields corn that would make good silage, Moose said, due to a greater number of leaves and larger stalk, which could also make it a good energy crop.
A Purdue University researcher says shedding corn stover saves about 40 percent of the energy needed to process cellulosic material to make ethanol. Purdue Associate Professor Dennis Buckmaster said shredding corn silage provides better access to cellulose, which is the main part of plant cell walls necessary to make ethanol. Buckmaster says he placed chopped and shredded corn stalks in water and compared the amount of leachates in each solution.
A Purdue University researcher has found a way to get more bang for fewer bucks when it comes to processing cellulosic material to make ethanol.
