Is there a market for switchgrass for biofuel and how do I get started?
Currently, there is no open market for switchgrass. Switchgrass for biofuel is normally produced under a contractual arrangement. After a person has a satisfactory contract, the producer should consult with the end user to confirm product requirements and specifications, such as plant variety and in what form the switchgrass is to be harvested. For more information see Biomass Feedstocks and Energy Independence and Feedstocks for Biofuel Production. Contributors: Clark Garland and Tina Johnson, University of Tennessee (Credit: eXtension)
