Bioenergy[edit]

I can't take the time to do it...but there were recent publications about corn stover as a fuel stock by ASA-CSSA-SSA societies. Likely uses will probably be in cellulosic ethanol and even biochar/terra preta GTL technologies. Stover is, however, pretty important in the benefits of conservation tillage. So, as with any biofuel, there's at least one catch!

Please sign your postings and use headings when using the talk pages.
Removal of corn stover from fields can create problems with erosion and lack of carbon. However, this depends on local variations and how much of the stover that is removed. In temperate climates where the carbon layer is thick, the plowing of stover can actually increase erosion as you plow it back in. So moderate use of corn stover could be advantegeous to the soil, as this erosion would decrease. --Tunheim 09:15, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

What happens to corn stover if it's not utilized for feed, fuel, or whatever? Does the farmer plow it back under? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 157.127.124.14 (talk) 19:58, 6 May 2008 (UTC)
