As we all know, the growth and utilization of grass is influenced by the weather and climate. Generally, grass looses the nutrition in the winter, even becomes very dry. But in warm seasons, the grass grows exuberantly. Even so, the grass pelleting machine can make grass pellet using these grasses, what you need to do is adjust the moisture content of the grass to 12-16% by watering it or drying it in the sun. Too dry grass can not be easily fed into the machine, and too wet grass will be mushy around the pressing roller thus influencing the pelletng effect and reducing the service time of the roller.

There are various grass types, some grasses without much nutrition matters like switchgrass, sugar grass, miscanthus are suitable for making grass pellet fuel; while other grasses like purus frumentum, ryegrass, pennisetum sinese, alfalfa are more suitable for making feed pellets, because they are filled with rich nutrition even some are filled with rich protein.

However, due to the difference of the soil PH value, different regions grow different grasses. For instance, the switchgrass grows in the majority of American great plains and the eastern areas. The ryegrass is planted in the areas where the wheat can grow. The erect milkvetch can grows in various soils like chernozem, black loess even in the soil with low fertility.
To be concluded, people should investigate the local grass before making the grass pellets.
