Biomass Agronomy Guides and Videos on OBPC Website

20 Dec 2016 10:29 AM | Urs Eggimann (Administrator)

As a first deliverable of a 2-year KTT initiative (Knowledge Translation & Transfer) the project team has released agronomy guides for switchgrass and miscanthus production. These documents can be accessed on the OBPC website

The agronomy guides are comprehensive resources for existing and future biomass producers. The agronomy guides provide practical answers and solutions to newcomers of Ag biomass production as well as to very advanced growers.

The guides are the results of a very productive partnership of the University of Guelph, OMAFRA, REAP-Canada and Ontario Biomass Producers Co-operative Inc. as well as our sponsors Livestock Research Innovation Corporation Inc. and Ontario Agri-Food Technologies.

The project team is currently working on guides, addressing biomass based animal bedding and feed. During the winter season the project team has planned several "roadshow" initiatives, starting with a presentation at FarmSmart on January 21 in Guelph and a 3-hour switchgrass seminar at the Organic Conference on January 27.

We will keep you posted about future events.
