What is Elephant Grass or Miscanthus?
Last Updated:  06/25/2015 06:30:19 AM

Harvesting miscanthus canes

Miscanthus, also called "elephant grass,  is a tall perennial grass that has been evaluated in Europe during the past 5-10 years as a new bioenergy crop. Most of the miscanthus cultivars proposed as a commercial crop in Europe are sterile hybrids (Miscanthus x giganteus) which originated in Japan. Miscanthus was first cultivated in Europe in the 1930s.

Miscanthus can be harvested every year with a sugar cane harvester and can be grown in a cool climate like that of northern Europe.

Like other bioenergy crops, the harvested stems of miscanthus may be used as fuel for production of heat and electric power, or for conversion to other useful products such as ethanol.
