Summary

Italian ryegrass would need an additional nitrogen fertilizer application after cereal harvest to achieve its full yield potential. Use of legumes as undersown crops might be better in energy balance point of view. Yield of catch crops would produce suitable biomass for biogas refineries adding substantial amount to animal manure which might be the main biomass source for biogas production.
