The aim of the current study was to assess the biochemical methane potential (BMP) of different functional groups harvested from different semi-natural grassland types that are valuable for nature conservation purposes. Ensiling of particular biomass did not significantly influence its methane yield, however, the ranking of functional groups by their(More)
This study investigated the temporal dynamics of the degradation of organic matter (OM), fibre, protein and remaining organic constituents during anaerobic digestion of silages from maize, sunflower and sorghum-sudangrass that were harvested at different maturity stages. The tests were conducted using an in sacco method in 20 l digesters. The degradation(More)
European agricultural policy increasingly focuses on environmental friendly cropping systems. Intercropping of maize (Zea mays L.) and common beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) has been suggested as an alternative cropping system with environmental benefits. The aim of this study was to assess methane yield potential of mixed silages. Based on material from two(More)
