|Abstract: ||Switchgrass for bioenergy production will require substantial storage. This
study evaluated costs of alternative baling and on-farm storage systems. Rectangular
bales minimize cost if switchgrass is processed immediately after harvest. However,
round bales minimize cost if switchgrass is stored under cover for 200 days before
transporting to the biorefinery|
