Learn about growing, harvesting, storage, processing, and utilization of biomass such as: manure, forest slash, food waste, agriculture residues, wood processing residues, and dedicated energy crops (e.g. oilseeds, grasses, hybrid poplar, etc.). Review technologies that can utilize biomass to sequester carbon and generate electricity, heat, transportation fuels, recovered nutrients/soil amendments, reclaimed water, animal feed, bio-chemicals, and other byproducts. Lay the groundwork for soil fertility studies for oilseed crops and field corn amended with biochar, compost, and/or digestate from an anaerobic digester. Recommended for students working towards Biomass Feedstock Management Certificate, Plant and Soil Science, and/or Precision Agriculture degree(s).
