With one teaspoon of crop residue potentially able to produce as much as 100 gallons of ethanol, it is no wonder that biomass is being considered a viable alternative to grain-based biofuel. However, crop residue removal techniques can lead to severe adverse effects on the soil and environment. This volume presents the state-of-the-knowledge to collate, review, and synthesize the available information pertaining to biofuel production. It addresses the strain that crop residue removal places on soil quality; the proper means of farming systems for biofuel production; the various plant species used for bioenergy plantations; and the myths and facts surrounding biofuels.
