Along with industrial and food crops, energy crops as fast-growing species could form abundant biomass. One of such species of raw materials is Miscanthus giganteus which grows in one place for more than 25 years and annually could produce powerful ground mass even on poor lands since the third year of its life. To study the agrobiological features of Miscanthus giganteus and its introduction in the Middle Volga region, a plantation was laid on the light gray soil of the experimental field near Penza State Agrarian University (Russia) FSBEI HE Penza GAU in 2013. The accumulated snow cover contributed to a good wintering of the culture, and in the second year of life, its productivity increased by 15 t/ha. The next year of research, it was 36 t/ha, despite the arid conditions. Consequently, it should be mentioned that during the introduction of Miscanthus giganteus in zones with unstable moisture on poor soils, it is possible to obtain, if not a stable, but a sufficient high yield of raw materials.
