Italian trial on phytoremediation biomasses for the CERESiS project

A photo of the Phalaris arundinacea (reed canary grass) that was grown for the CERESiS project in the fields of our experimental teaching farm at the University of Tuscia – Viterbo (IT).

The plant, after having passed the tillering phase, is in its stem elongation phase i.e. (id est) the lengthening of the culm's internodes.

Thus far (in its first year), the plant has proved to be not as competitive as our other native grasses; several of the main crop's weeds can be easily identified in the picture.
