High value co-products can greatly improve the feasibility of utilising plant feedstocks for biorefining and biofuel production. Plant polyphenolics have potential application in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. Orchard grass varieties have been noted for accumulation of polyphenolic compounds and the current study determined the soluble phenol profile and content in the orchard grass variety Abertop. Hydroxycinnamates and flavonoids, were monitored during transition from vegetative to flowering stage at maximum crop yield. Caffeic acid derivatives, related to bioactives in the Asian medicinal herb Salvia miltiorrhiza, and novel hydroxycinnamate-flavone conjugates were also identified in extracts. Harvest yields of hydroxycinnamates and flavonoids ranged from 2.6-5.1 and 4.3-6.2 kg/ha respectively. Abundant compounds showed high levels of antioxidant activity comparable with ascorbic acid. Minimal changes in soluble phenol content and composition were observed after ensiling with the exception to this being an increase in caffeic acid, a caffeic acid derivative and a caffeic acid breakdown product, dihydroxystyrene.
