MSU BioEnergy Feedstock Cropping Systems

 

The MSU BioEnergy Cropping Systems research program is focused on bioenergy feedstock production issues pertinent to the Great Lakes Region.  Our program focuses on a wide range of crop production aspects including:  bio-energy crop production, utility and assessment of marginal lands for biofuel crop production;  management, landscape and soil effects on biofuel crop quality; development of an NIR calibration equation for quantifying ethanol yield from corn grain;  carbon cycling in complete biomass removal cropping systems;  tillage systems, weed control, rotational aspects, in-field plant arrangement, soil variability affects on yield, environmental aspects, and precision agriculture.
