    Urs posted an interesting weed control experience in the 'Members Only' forum regarding switchgrass stand establishment. 
    What other issues/challenges to potential biomass producers face when establishing a perennial grass stand? Let's use this forum to generate discussion around the agronomic challenges and potential solutions that govern successful stand establishment.

    We still have a lot of open issues regarding switchgrass establishment and potential yield.
    Bill Deen and Heather Engbers have taken a good number of biomass and soil samples on November 7, just before the cutting of my switchgrass and Big Bluestem fields. The goal is to get better data in terms of soil structure and nutrients (P&K) and relate them to actual yield. We will share this information once the results are in. Stay tuned ...
