Assessment of two alternative switchgrass harvest and transport methods
As the search for renewable energy sources from agriculture intensifies, many agricultural producers are contemplating production of a native perennial grass species, switchgrass (Panicum Vigratum, L.). While much information on various aspects of switchgrass production exists, this paper discusses implications of two alternative harvesting and transportation methods that may be suitable for Arkansas conditions. Results suggested that module building compared to the simpler round baling technology may be a promising alternative.
