- ... Crop residue management, provision of animal feed or bedding, and increased income are potential reasons for harvesting corn (L.) stover. Reasons for not doing so include the need for crop residue to restore or increase soil organic matter, protect against wind and water erosion, and cycle plant nutrients. Bioenergy market development may increase the number of producers harvesting corn stover. Ca ...

- ... A sustainable solution to biomass burning by converting agricultural residues into biochar was provided. Biochar application was investigated to improve soil fertility, sequester carbon, and increase crop production. Rice husk (RHBC) and corn stover (CSBC) biochars were obtained by slow pyrolysis at 650° and 550 °C, respectively. RHBC and CSBC were characterized (SEM, SEM-EDX, TEM, FTIR, XRD, elem ...
