Seasonal growth characteristics and biomass yield potential of 4 small-leaf, floating, aquatic macrophytes cultured in nutrient nonlimiting conditions were evaluated for central Florida’s climatic conditions. Biomass yields were found to be 10.6, 11.3, 16.1, and 32.1 t (dry wt) har−1 yr−1, respectively, for azolla (Azolla caroliniana), giant duckweed (Spirodela polyrhiza), common duckweed (Lemna minor), and salvinia (Salvinia rotundifolia). Operational plant density was in the range of 10–80 g… CONTINUE READING
