Countryfile, 'Bracken' Fuel?

Recommended Posts

Wonder if you can turn/bale it in the rain? or did they just go through the motions for the cameras. Ingenious idea though, pity you couldn't do the same with knotweed.

Just heard the other day - they've discovered a chemical in Jap Knotweed roots that could be the next panacea: cardio protective, anti cancer, anti ageing, weight loss etc etc.

Most bracken is on steep ground , very rare to have land running to hundreds of acres that one could use big heavy equipment . Would not knock the end product though , although if one cut annually the crop would get less each year , not sure how they could get enough supply .
