Food and fuel: model for bioenergy feedstock/vegetable double-cropping systems

8 mayo 2015

Researchers realize that biomass feedstock will need to come from many different sources, in order to meet the revised Renewable Fuel Standard mandating the production of 36 billion gallons of biofuel by the year 2022. The concern remains over converting land from food crops to energy crops. Now a crop scientist, interested in a possible bioenergy feedstock/vegetable double-cropping system, has found promising results in such a system using pumpkin as the vegetable crop.
