KBS researchers say there’s more to biofuel production than the yield

The latest research findings from the Kellogg Biological Station (KBS) Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) program suggest that biofuel production should be gauged by much more than the yield. Writing in the latest issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) journal, KBS researchers show that even though corn yields the greatest amount of biomass, other biofuel crops such as native perennial grasses score higher as viable alternatives when other environmental benefits are put into play.
