The Freedom variety of Giant Miscanthus was the focus of a presentation given by Phillip Jennings, the CEO Repreve Renewables. His company has developed a salt-tolerant variety that grows wonderfully on marginal soils. With operations in Soperton, Ga., Repreve Renewables has 400 acres of the C4 tall grass planted. "We are commercial," he told the audience. Giant Miscanthus is friendly to bird and animal populations, too, he said. Repreve planted a 10-foot buffer along a stretch of Georgia’s Red River to trap nitrates, which it did very well, he added.
