Hybrid rye shows promise for UK biogas

8/11/2013

Results from both plot and field scale trials this year have confirmed hybrid rye as the leading alternative cereal to maize as an anaerobic digester (AD) feedstock.
Maize is currently the leading feedstock,grown specifically for biogas, but it is not suitable for every farm and growers in less favorable maize areas may find rye a viable option.
It can be used in addition to maize as a feedstock, to expand the utilization of and supply to the digester, which is often fed with mixtures of maize, rye and beet.
