    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The cultivation of perennial grasses is one of the most desirable alternatives as energy&amp;nbsp;feedstock, but it is dicult to achieve competitive yields under Mediterranean marginal conditions.&amp;nbsp;The aim of this study was to assess the performance of three cool-season grasses (Agropyron spp.)&amp;nbsp;from an agronomic and energetic point of view by comparing the dry matter (DM) yields, rain use&lt;br&gt;
eciency, chemical composition, and biomass quality over an eight-year period in Spain under&amp;nbsp;marginal rainfed conditions. The tall wheatgrass (Agropyron elongatum (Host) Beauv.) cultivars, Alkar&amp;nbsp;(4.8 Mg DMha􀀀1) and Jose (4.7 Mg DMha􀀀1), achieved the&amp;nbsp;highest yields. Productions below 0.5 Mg&amp;nbsp;DMha􀀀1 were obtained when rainfall was lower than 150 mm between March and June. The biomass&amp;nbsp;obtained from the tested grasses showed relatively high contents of ash, silicon, and alkali elements.&amp;nbsp;Net calorific values ranged between 16.7 and 18.5 MJkg􀀀1 db. Di erences in the composition among&amp;nbsp;species and cultivars are not likely to a ect their combustion behavior from a practical point of view.&amp;nbsp;The ash content, as well as the concentrations of K, S, Na, and Cl, tended to decrease over the years.&amp;nbsp;The results o ered would be very useful for the implementation of this type of crop in marginal land.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
