Drought effects on composition and yield for corn stover, mixed grasses, andMiscanthusas bioenergy feedstocks

Rachel Emerson

2014

Composition ƒƒ Drought significantly increased extractives and decreased structural components of the plant cell wall including cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin. ƒƒ Severity of drought conditions influenced the chemical composition of biomass; mixed perennial grasses that experienced smaller differences in drought conditions had no significant change in glucan and increased xylan. ƒƒ Nitrogen fertilization did not influence chemical composition of Miscanthus x giganteus biomass significantly as compared with drought influences
