What is the difference between agricultural residues, energy crops and fibre crops?

0

Agricultural residue crops are the waste part of plants used typically in food production. Energy and fibre crops, sometimes called also as on purpose crops or industrial crops, are cultivated usually only for non-food production, e.g. for energy or papermaking purposes. Typical agricultural residue crops are wheat straws, rice straws, bagasse (sugarcane waste) and corn stalks. Common on purpose crops are for example Elephant grass / Miscanthus, reed canary grass or kenaf.
