The evidence gathered supports the conclusion that the yield from Miscanthus (elephant grass) in Northern Ireland should be similar to that in the rest of the UK and that if grown and used for biomass, it could make a significant contribution to carbon savings. While in Northern Ireland it may be more difficult to harvest the crop at below 20% moisture content, Miscanthus will still be harvested drier than SRC willows while having a similar calorific content.
