In this work a comparative study of whole biomass productivity of several triticale (x triticosecale) and rye (Secale cereale) varieties experimented on different locations of Spain and their energy content is conducted. Varieties are selected for biomass production so that they do not compete with grain cereals grown for food or traditional purposes. Furthermore, the proposed crops are very hardy crops that could represent an option for the cultivation of dry land that have been...
