Switchgrass Production

 

 

 

Current Production

Switch Energy and Nott Farms are both owned by Don Nott.

Don has 500 acres of switch grass under permanent cultivation. Unlike other crops, switch grass is planted and allowed to grow on the same field for many years. Switch grass is native to North America. Fields of switch grass, under managed cultivation, exist that are over 25 years old.

Harvested  switch grass can be pelleted and used as a renewable heating fuel. Pelleted switch grass is available in bulk or 50lb bags.  

 

 

Seed Availability for 2012

Switch Grass is planted in the spring using a standard seed drill. Seed rates are between 8-9 pounds per acre. The crop reaches it's full potential in the third year.

Feel free to contact Don at Switch Energy to discuss your switch grass seed purchases.
