Ash content: its effect on combustion of corn plants

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Two corn plant samples, one cut in the fall while green, the other after weathering over the winter, exhibited strikingly different combustion properties. The increased susceptibility to flaming combustion of the spring-harvested sample is attributable to its decreased ash content, and not directly to its moisture content.
