arbon dioxide and water fluxes from switchgrass managed for bioenergy roduction

  title={arbon dioxide and water fluxes from switchgrass managed for bioenergy roduction},
  author={Howard D Skinner and Paul R. Adler},
Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) is an important bioenergy crop with the potential to provide a reliable supply of renewable energy while also sequestering C in the soil. The purpose of this study was to quantify CO2 fluxes during the establishment and early production years of a young switchgrass stand in the northeastern USA. Switchgrass was sown in June 2004 and daily CO2 fluxes were measured for four years. Gross primary productivity (GPP) varied little among years, but ecosystem… CONTINUE READING
