British Society of Plant Breeders launches Biogas Maize Descriptive List


A new variety descriptive list has been created for biogas producers growing and using forage maize as a feedstock. The British Society of Plant Breeders (BSPB) has launched the Biogas Maize Descriptive List for 2014 with 12 varieties listed for favourable sites and five for less favourable sites. The area of forage maize grown as feedstock for biogas is estimated to be around 15,500 hectares in 2013, equivalent to 10% of the UK crop. Up to 4.5% of the 2012 crop was used in biogas production.
