    Tall wheatgrass

    When we started looking for new energy crops we never imagined that emissions and energy balances had to be so important for sustainability. Elytrigia elongata is orginal from Eurasia and was brought to United States and Argentina many decades ago. Its low digestibility and high drought and low pH tolerance encouragedus to investigate. Now in Spain, the crop has been evaluated as one of the best promises as raw material for electricity in marginal areas.

    For many years, it created little interest because it is coarse, not particularly drought tolerant and slow to establish. However, it has demonstrated its ability to thrive in subirrigated, saline soil where foxtail barley is usually the dominant grass. Tall wheatgrass is the latest-maturing grass adapted to the continental climate areas of the west and also one of the most productive.

    Tall wheatgrass in North Dakota can provide cheaper biomass than highly reputed energy grasses like switchgrass because it has the ability to grow and resist intense drought events in summers, providing acceptable yields with low fertilization and costs. Mowing and baling operations are very cheap and easy since the crops losses moisture during June, July and August. Easy harvest seeds may be obtained in some plots in the farm (about 500-1000kg/ha.year).

    Argentina is one of the most important Tall wheatgrasses (called "agropiros") planters in the world. TW produces biomass to allow the production and maintenance of one cow and calf per year even in the worst areas. Semiarid areas feedstock production with really low inputs from very hardy grasses like Tall wheatgrass is already a viable alternative to feed biobased industries and mitigate emissions efficiently when providing green covers and improving soils in a long term perspective.

    Tim started planting tall wheatgrass in 1985. The valley flats were undulating with areas of ryegrass and barley grass saltpans. He thought its only a matter of time before the whole area would be covered with barley grass and decided to do something about it while he still could. Tall wheatgrass uses moisture from the soil profile over summer and provide winter feed. When producing for biobased industries, energy grasses give marginal but profitable results in low productive areas.
