Tallgrass Prairie Center releases final project report

The University of Northern Iowa's Tallgrass Prairie Center recently concluded the Prairie Power Project and has released the final project report. 

The project studied biomass production of four different native species seed mixes over three different soil types on non-prime agricultural land on a production scale over 5 years. Additionally, wildlife habitat and soil carbon sequestration were studied at the site, and in 2012 all of the material was harvested, processed, and test burned in the Cedar Falls Utilities power plant.

Information about the project and the final report are available on the project website at:  http://www.tallgrassprairiecenter.org/prairie-energy/prairie-power-project-final-report-and-brochure.
