Abstract

Assesses the effects of nitrogen fertilization on the growth and biomass partitioning of warm-season grasses as potential crops for renewable energy. Nitrogen increased the yield of all species but the extent of the increase varied by species. The effects of nitrogen on root:shoot ratios also varied by species.
