Energy beet offers high methane yield for biogas (USA)


New trials show energy beet provides the highest dry matter and methane yield of any crop making it a perfect partner for maize in biogas plants. The independent trials showed the best energy specific varieties produced 3t/ha more dry matter yield than the common variety Magnum. This equated to the equivalent of up to £500 of electricity being produced per cropped hectare.
