CenUSA enhanced switchgrass production tool now available

CenUSA Bioenergy has released a new switchgrass cost production tool for producers.*

To Grow or not to Grow: A Tool for Comparing Returns to Switchgrass for Bioenergy with Annual Crops and CRP

This tool is intended to give producers a guide to understanding best management practices for switchgrass production and also to compare the expected returns to switchgrass production with several alternative land uses. 

The tool is made up of two files, a Tool Instruction Guide (pdf) and the Tool Worksheet (Excel Worksheet).

The tool uses a worksheet format to allow producers to:

  • Calculate Production Estimates
  • Compare Per-Acre Net Returns

The tool is a collaborative effort by CenUSA's Keri JacobsRob Mitchell and Chad Hart.
