Soil carbon effects of ethanol feedstocks

SwitchgrassJoshua Kendall, a PhD soil science candidate in CFAES’s School of Environment and Natural Resources, presents “Soil Carbon Dynamics of Transition to Pacific Northwest Cellulosic Ethanol Feedstock Production” at 2:30 p.m. today in 245 Kottman Hall, 2021 Coffey Road, on Ohio State’s Columbus campus, with a video link to 117A Williams Hall, 1680 Madison Ave., at CFAES’s research arm in Wooster, OARDC. His work relates to commercially producing ethanol from agricultural biomass. It looked at corn, wheat and switchgrass (pictured), two harvest levels, and their effects on the soil’s organic carbon.
