Q: STOVER?

A: (source: Wiki):

Stover is the leaves and stalks of field crops, such as corn (maize), sorghum or soybean that are commonly left in a field after harvesting the grain. It can be directly grazed by cattle or dried for use as fodder. It is similar to straw, the residue left after any cereal grain or grass has been harvested at maturity for its seed. Stover has attracted some attention as a potential fuel source, and as biomass for fermentation or as a feedstock for cellulosic ethanol production.[1] Corn stover has also attracted interest in mushroom compost preparation.
