Hybrid Rye and Biogas

Here you can learn more about the advantages as a biogas feedstock and agronomic advantages of hybrid rye. Furthermore you can find find a lot of useful downloads and publications.

Key advantages as a biogas (AD) feedstock

  • High yield potential (35 – 50 t/ha freshweight)
  • DM content (30 – 40%)
  • Universal soil type and geographic potential
  • Spreads storage (clamp) utilisation and harvest workload
  • Ideal co-feedstock - comparable biogas yield / FM tonne to maize silage (200 cu/m3)

Agronomic advantages of hybrid rye

  • Extreme winter hardiness and frost resistance
  • Aggressive tillering capacity
  • Drought tolerance – ideal for sandy soils
  • Blackgrass suppression – via light reduction in the canopy
  • Extends crop rotation
  • Very high take-all tolerance – ideal as a second cereal
  • Minimal ergot risk – via PollenPlus®
