The application of physiological and molecular understanding of the effects of the environment on photosynthesis in the selection of novel fuel crops; with particular reference to C4 perennials

The application of physiological and molecular understanding of the effects of the environment on photosynthesis in the selection of novel fuel crops; with particular reference to C4 perennials

Plant production on the threshold of a new century Proceedings of the International Conference at the Occasion of the 75th Anniversary of the Wageningen Agricultural University, Wageningen, The Netherlands, 28 June 1 July, 1993: 231-244

Fuel crops offer a solution to 2 major problems confronting W. Europe: productive use of excess agricultural land and a decreased dependence on fossil fuels. Choice, selection and improvement of potential fuel crops require a major change in approaches to crop improvement. Key goals will be maximizing efficiency of energy conversion whilst decreasing inputs of nitrogen and pesticides.
