Poster Title: Analysis of Biomass Handling Systems

Authors: Doug Brownell and Jude Liu

Poster Abstract: Various biomass handling systems have been evaluated for harvest and handling costs.  A self-loading forage wagon was used to harvest alfalfa, wheat straw, and switchgrass in a loose form. A forage harvester and truck system was used to harvest alfalfa for comparison.  A round baler, and large square baler were used to harvest switchgrass for comparison.
