Good.

Why has that been planted en masse like that?

Because the government thought that it was a great idea to pay us to harvest it, bale it and sell it to firms that burn it and convert it into electricity

Interesting, I've wondered what it's purpose was. Another great idea.

Is it invasive at all, does it spread itself around? Like a lot of the bamboos do for instance.

The idea is good, but I feel that it needs to be grown and harvested and burnt on a local basis.   A small town or large village should have its own anaerobic digester, straw burning plant both for heat and electric, every house with solar panels and tubes, ground and air source heat pumps, local wind machines.

There  are so many inefficiencies with transporting all this straw with HGVs, and electrical losses in long distance electric lines.
