What's Happening at CSWQRU
In April 2012, USDA ARS scientists & technicians planted Giant Miscanthus on research plots at the University of Missouri's South Farm near Columbia, Missouri. The research project: “Landscape-Based Crop Management for Food, Feed, and Bioenergy” focuses in part on determining where on the landscape to best place alternative crops, such as perennial bioenergy crops. Field research is being conducted to evaluate the production, profitability, and environmental ramifications of bioenergy crops.
