Benefits of Miscanthus Giganteus cultivation:

  • Renewable Energy Production: Miscanthus can be used as a feedstock for bioenergy production, including the generation of biofuels (such as ethanol) and bioelectricity. Using Miscanthus as a bioenergy crop can reduce the reliance on fossil fuels, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to a more sustainable energy mix.

  • Carbon Sequestration: Miscanthus is a fast-growing perennial grass that can capture and store significant amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. This process, known as carbon sequestration, helps mitigate climate change by reducing the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

  • Reduced Soil Erosion: Miscanthus has an extensive root system that helps stabilize soil and reduce erosion. This can be especially beneficial in areas where soil erosion is a concern, helping to protect valuable topsoil and maintain soil health.

  • Sustainable Land Use: Miscanthus can be grown on marginal or abandoned agricultural land, providing an alternative land use option that can help restore and rejuvenate degraded areas.

  • Reduced Soil Disturbance: Unlike annual crops that require regular tilling and replanting, Miscanthus is a perennial crop that minimizes soil disturbance. This can help maintain soil structure and reduce soil erosion.

Once established, Miscanthus can persist for several years without replanting. This long-term sustainability reduces the frequency of land preparation and planting, further contributing to environmental benefits.

About Miscanthus


Originating from Asia, Miscanthus X Giganteus is a formidable "woody" perennial grass, boasting a yearly growth of at least 10 feet once established. It emerges from a natural cross between miscanthus sacchariflorus and miscanthus sinensis, resulting in a sterile triploid grass — possessing three sets of chromosomes and eliminating concerns over invasiveness due to its lack of viable seeds and underground runners. Furthermore, it robustly withstands temperatures down to -20°C.
As a prospective biomass crop, miscanthus offers substantial dry stems, usable as fuel for heat and electricity or convertible to ethanol. Notably, its photosynthetic mechanism is seemingly more adapted to low temperatures compared to other C4 crops, ensuring high productivity even in cooler conditions.
During the first frost, miscanthus undergoes a two-week process, withdrawing nutrients from above ground to the rhizomes below, preparing for the subsequent year's growth. Concurrently, it transitions through shades until it settles into a golden brown hue, which it retains from winter through to the next spring's growth.
Miscanthus demonstrates notable aspects in both its growth and propagation methods. Each year, it produces new stalks, with each one typically measuring around 3/8" in diameter and forming clusters that spread approximately 6cm on average. When it comes to propagation, Miscanthus employs a unique approach due to its inherent sterility. Instead of relying on seeds, propagation is achieved through rhizome division, wherein pieces of the root, or rhizomes, which are roughly 6cm in length, are planted to cultivate new growth. This method ensures a continuation of its robust and reliable growth cycle year after year.
Miscanthus x Giganteus showcases efficient and high-yielding growth characteristics, attributed in part to its capability for C4 photosynthesis. The species excels by efficiently utilizing available resources, demonstrating rapid growth even under conditions with limited nutrients. Additionally, it exhibits a notable resilience to pests and diseases, which further solidifies its capacity to provide consistent yields year after year. Particularly impressive is its potential yield: upon reaching peak maturity, which typically occurs around its fourth year, Miscanthus X Giganteus is capable of producing up to 28 tons of dry material per hectare. It’s noteworthy that each year, reports indicate even higher yield potentials, underscoring its remarkable proficiency as a biomass producer.

planting & CARE

Plant rhizomes horizontally, 10-15cm deep, ensuring no part protrudes above the soil. If the rhizome displays new growth, such as a pink shoot or grass blade, it may be planted slightly above ground in shallower soil with an inch of soil atop. Although a well-tilled bed accelerates root establishment, it isn’t mandatory. Ideal planting conditions involve moist, warm soil at an average ground temperature of 15C degrees, with conscientious avoidance of over-watering and meticulous attention to combating weeds during the first year. Maintain a soil pH between 5.5 and 7.5.
In the first year, a rhizome typically produces 5-15+ stalks, reaching 50-120cm. The second year sees an increase to an average of 20-45 stalks, extending to 120-200cm. By the third year, expect clusters to span 50-100cm in diameter, containing approximately 75-150 stalks that reach full height (300cm+). During the fourth year, rhizomes planted 33cm apart should mesh into each other, with the speed of spread varying according to soil type.
Miscanthus X Giganteus boasts efficient nutrient use and has the ability to draw nutrients back down to the rhizomes post-growing season, minimizing fertilizer demands. However, a yearly fertilization routine, commencing about three weeks post-planting with a "triple" fertilizer, encourages further rhizome and stalk growth. At the same fertilization point, apply a spray-based herbicide to curtail new weed seed germination. Suitable herbicides include Dual, Atrazine, and 2,4-D.
