Miscanthus is a suitable alternative for energy biomass. Particularly, in cultivation area that is prone to flooding. Current commercial Miscanthus can survive in the winter-flooded environment. There is no significant difference in yield and other physiological development. Observed height and tiller number have no differences between winter flooded and non-flooded ground.
