Abstract

The Chariton Valley Biomass Project was aided by the Leopold Center's contribution to its education and outreach activities. The project aimed to inform Iowans about the potential for growing switchgrass for biomass energy purposes.

Key Question

How can we achieve economic development, provide alternative agriculture options, and help preserve and conserve our natural resources in our RC&D area?

Findings

The Chariton Valley Biomass Project is moving beyond the research and development aspect to the commercialization of switchgrass production that will meet these objectives.
