I only ask the question whether Kudzu could be a cellulosic biofuel crop because I came across it on Corn is for Eatin, a blog post by David Esrati (who is standing for Congress). Kudzu seems to have all the qualities that you need: it fixes nitrogen, grows about 30 cm/day and was declared a pest by the US DoAg in 1953. In other words it is a weed. It seems to cost money to remove.
Kudzu as a biofuel crop?
