Forages for Biofuel

The MSU forage research program is a satellite site for the CenUSA Bioenergy Project.  At our field site at the Upper Peninsula Research and Extension Center in Chatham, MI, switchgrass, big bluestem, and Indiangrass  genotypes are being evaluated as part of a breeding program designed to develop varieties suited for cellulosic feedstock production on marginal lands.
