Perennial bioenergy crops in Western Corn Belt may be threatened

February 25, 2013 |

In South Dakota, the National Academy of Sciences has published a report on land conversion across the US Western Corn Belt (WCB) that warns about a persistent shift in land use, rather than “short-term variability in crop rotation patterns.” The report indicates that the “benefits of a biofuel industry based on perennial bioenergy crops, rather than corn ethanol and soy biodiesel, may be closing in the WCB.”
