An Overview of Switchgrass Diseases

Average: 3 (1 vote)
Monday, December 30, 2013

Because it is a native species requiring minimal management and has a high potential to sequester carbon, switchgrass has been identified as a potential biofuel species. As for any cultivated crop, diseases, insects, and weeds can be major constraints in switchgrass production. To date, not much research has been done on switchgrass diseases. Therefore, little is known about their etiology, epidemiology and impact on yield. This webinar will give an overview of switchgrass diseases. Among the diseases that will be discussed are Panicum mosaic caused by a virus and rust and leaf spots caused by fungi.

Saturday, March 29, 2014

Dr. Richard Perrin, professor at the University of Nebraska Lincoln Agricultural Economics Department and a CenUSA Bioenergy researcher presents information about switchgrass production costs, potential markets, and market values for switchgrass biomass. Dr. Perrin also discusses potential break even values for corn and switchgrass production on marginal land. This CenUSA webinar was funded by the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative Competitive Grant no. 2011-68005-30411 from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

Friday, May 30, 2014

Dr. Keri Jacobs, Co-PD of CenUSA bioenergy Marketing and Economics objective presents this webinar. This presentation considers the current economics of switchgrass production in the Central United States and the fundamental challenges and opportunities that exist. Insight from producers surveys on the market conditions for perennial grasses and implications for market development will be discussed. Program options for dovetailing perennial grass production with existing conservation programs will also be presented.

Perennial Herbaceous Biomass Biomass Production and Harvest in the Prairie Pothole Region of the Northern Great Plains

No votes yet
Sunday, June 29, 2014

The northern Great Plains holds some of the greatest potential for the production of cellulosic biomass, but the region is also critical for wildlife producing 50-80% of waterfowl populations and providing breeding habitat for more than half of the bird species that breed in North America.

This webinar will focus on development of “Best Management Guidelines (BMGs) to Achieve Sustainability of Wildlife Resources” during perennial herbaceous biomass production and harvest by producers and industry in the Prairie Pothole Region of the Northern Great Plains. Sponsored by CenUSA, SunGrant, and National Wildlife Federation.
