374 Bioenergy Crops and Their Impacts On Crop Production, Soil and Environmental Quality: II

Poster Session
S06 Soil & Water Management & Conservation This technical session will focus on the implications of growing energy crops (e.g., feedstocks for cellulosic ethanol production) on soil and water quality, carbon sequestration, greenhouse gas emissions, grain and biomass production, and the projected global climate change. This session will comprise presentations about crop residual removal and alternative biofuel feedstock sources including warm season grasses, short-rotation woody crops, high-biomass producing cropping systems (e.g., intensive rotations, cover crops, and forage sorghum), and others. It will also emphasize on the potential of growing energy crops in marginal or degraded lands including former Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) lands.
