Preparations for Planting Miscanthus / Elephant Grass
To be prepared for planting, the field should be ploughed to a depth of at least 20 cm in autumn. It should be ensured that no large organic amounts of previous crops are incorporated, since the free-releasing nitrogen inhibits the maturation in autumn. one-year-old miscanthus plants start storing nutrients in the rhizomes very late in autumn, and, thus, the frost resistance cannot be protected sufficiently during the too intensive growth, especially in autumn.
