Boosting biogas production with HYVIDO® hybrid barley

In Italy, farmers have increased the production of biogas, which is used to generate electrical power or heat, by planting HYVIDO® hybrid barley instead of corn, wheat or triticale.

HYVIDO® offers several advantages over other crops; for example, it is more able to resist diseases, is more resilient to severe weather conditions and produces more organic material from each hectare. Also, farmers are able to plant two crops a year instead of one because HYVIDO® has a shorter production time than alternative crops.

In 2015, after just two years, HYVIDO® accounted for 30,000 hectares in Italy.
