|Toelichting (Engels)||Miscanthus, as a perennial rhizomatous C4 grass, is known for high nutrient use efficiency. It has been recognized as a good lignocellulosic biofuel source for its high productivity of which can be harvested up to 30 t / ha / year. Also, the wide spread origin of miscanthus indicated the potentially good adaptability of miscanthus to diverse environments. It is seen as a crop with a high potential to be grown in marginal areas to ease the competition of biofuel crops with food crops. With the objective to develop miscanthus varieties that have a good biomass quality for fuel production and together with high salinity tolerance, two different experiments were conducted.|
