A Biofuel Screening Program for Grass Feedstocks: Diversity, Physiological Traits and Compositional Characteristics for Optimal Yield

The objectives of this study were collection and performance evaluation of a broad range of monocultures and mixed stands of grass species and cultivars grown at multiple locations, on a range of soil types and under different fertilizer regimes, incorporating a variety of harvesting dates. Results to date show significant differences in the cell wall composition (monosaccharides) and insoluble cellulose content among the grass species, as well varieties within species.
