Abstract

•Elephantgrass produced on average 4- to 7-fold more biomass than bahiagrass.•Elephantgrass ET was about 35% higher compared to bahiagrass.•Elephantgrass reduced nitrate leaching compared to bahiagrass.•Application of bioenergy residuals did not affect yield, but tended to reduce drainage and increase ET.•Converting bahiagrass to elephantgrass is likely to decrease groundwater recharge, but improve water quality.
