Plant biomass has attracted interest as a feedstock for biofuels production, but much of this work has been focused on relatively few plant species. In this study, three relatively-unstudied species of warm-season perennial grasses, grown at multiple locations in the eastern and central US and harvested over a three year period, were examined for fermentability via in vitro ruminal gas production and dry matter digestibility assays, and near-infrared reflectance calibrations were developed for… CONTINUE READING
