Miscanthus is a tropical grass native to Africa and Asia which uses the C4-path to fixate carbon during photosynthesis, which means it produces biomass very efficiently. Miscanthus hasa rhizomatic planting system, and the crop develops while spreading its roots and producing a number of new shoots along the way.Several companies in the world  provide planting material and few of them can provide serious evaluations an solutions for marginal lands or with realistic advice on its utilization for pulp or energy in developing countries.
