Perennial energy crops : destruction of miscanthus plots

Miscanthus is a very interesting dedicated perennial crop in terms of biomass production and energy potential.
However, the question of its destruction for a re-cultivation of the plot appears to be crucial : an improperly carried out destruction can have heavy consequences for the following crop. The respect of some advice and the knowledge of the plant cycle facilitates the realization of its destruction and the re-cultivation of the plot.
Explanations with Sylvain MARSAC, engineer specialized in the non-food valorization of biomass at ARVALIS - Institut du végétal.
