Hybrid rye is a high value substrate for all year round use in the biogas plant. It helps to balance the high productivity of energy beet or maize substrates, providing an alternative nutrient source for the bacteria in the digester and stabilising gas output.

Retention time in the AD plant is similar to that of maize, at 60 – 90 days, and biogas yields of around 200 cu/m3 are also on par with maize silage.

Hybrid rye is relatively straightforward to grow and suits a wide range of soils across the UK, providing high DM yields and some major agronomic benefits, alongside an ability to spread the workload on farm.
