Nine tonnes harvested at Cœur Vert

13The experimental plot of miscanthus (7 ha) resulted in nine tonnes of dry matter being harvested last April. The dry matter was used for mulching as well as a test in the boiler room at La Fabrique 21, a commercial property devoted to eco-construction at Carrières-sous-Poissy. The test was successful and discussions are underway in order to roll out the technology locally. At the same time, agricultural work for phase 1 of the Cœur Vert area (57 ha) drew to a close. The landscape now features maize, hedges, miscanthus (14 ha), wildflower set-asides and patches of switchgrass.
