It is usually left behind in the field because of wet conditions in the fall, its protective role against erosion and its contribution to organic matter in the soil. However, part of this biomass could be harvested in a dry form in the spring for useful applications such as animal bedding, a renewable fuel or a biomaterial feedstock.
