It is relatively drought tolerant, has a high forage and ethanol yield per acre, has relatively low cost of production, is adaptable to no-till, has a co-product called bagasse that could be used for animal feed, and the crop itself could be used for silage if needed. It is also a late planted crop that fits well into cover cropping systems. Yields of 25 tons (fresh weight) are possible with juice yields of 2500-3000 gallons per acre possible.
