Sept. 19 field day looks at establishing perennial grass for bioenergy crops

Sept. 12, 2013 | 0 comments

Farmers and others interested in sustainable, perennial grass bioenergy systems are invited to attend a Perennial Grass Establishment for Biomass Production Field Day on Thursday, Sept. 19, from 1-2:30 p.m., at 777 Silver Lane in Albion.

While native perennial grasses offer a number of advantages over continuous corn or corn/soybean rotations - including better efficiency, higher yield, lower nutrient requirements and significant conservation and climate benefits - they need specific management, especially in the first year.

The field day offers an opportunity to compare first-year stands of switchgrass and native grass mixtures and to learn about management of native grasses, including pre-plant management, modifications to seeding equipment, conservation benefits, cost-share programs and more.

Presenters will include Kevin Shinners, UW-Madison agricultural engineer; Rob Meyers, agronomist, University of Nebraska-Lincoln; and Steve Bertjens, state biologist, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service

Albion is located about 35 minutes south of Madison. From either North or South on Interstate 39/90 take exit number 160 - Edgerton Hwys 51S/73/106 - and proceed north on Hwy 73. In approximately one mile, proceed east on Hwy 106. Silver Lane is approximately two miles east on Hwy 106.

Event sponsors include the UW-Madison College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, UW Environmental Resources Center, CenUSA, Dane County and Agrecol Corporation.
