Assessing the Potential Impact of Insect Pests and Plant Pathogens on Biomass Production of Miscanthus x Giganteus and Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum)

These two plant species are highly promising biomass sources, and insects and pathogens can cause diseases that can have a serious impact on production. This project seeks to identify such threats and to study possible control strategies.
