They are attractive because they are productive and recycle nutrients to the overwintering belowground rhizomes, before the dry shoots are harvested. They are therefore expected to require minimal fertilizer inputs, a desirable trait for any(More)
Efficient conversion of lignocellulosic feedstocks to ethanol will benefit from a consistent composition of supplied biomass.
