This study presents the comparison between agricultural and forest resources related to the needs of biochemical processes. Recommendations and exchanges with future users (IFP, ARD) were used in this study. 234 samples from two years (2007-2008 and 2008-2009) were selected and analysed. Various species were analysed for their chemical composition, especially the content of fermentable sugars. Then the results were shown for homogeneous species groups: annuals immature, annuals mature, forage grasses, perennials harvested green in...
