|‘Liberty’ switchgrass, the first bioenergy specific switchgrass developed
for the central Great Plains and Midwest.
|Field studies evaluating perennial grasses for bioenergy are being
conducted at more than 50 sites in NE, IA, IL, IN, MN, MO, OH, PA, SD,
ND, & WI on establishing & managing existing & new high yielding
