DK switchgrassOn September 5, 2014, biomass growers and interested farm producers gathered to exchange information and views on the potential for purpose grown biomass crops. The event was hosted by Don Nott at his farm facility near Clinton, Ontario. The event attracted close to a hundred participants from near and far.  Some notable experts from Quebec and Pennsylvania were in attendance, and brought valuable insights into the specifics of switchgrass — in particular, for new genetics that exhibit better yields, quality and early vigor among other traits. While the crop is showing great promise from an agronomic perspective, there is still a great deal to be done to develop a market for the harvest.

The current information on the business case for purpose grown biomass can be found in the 2012 assessment study and available from the OFA at the following link.

Anyone interested in acquiring more information on the association can contact Urs Eggimann, urs.eggimann@ontariobiomass.com.
