Wheat is primarily thought as a grain crop, but it is a useful winter pasture and forage source. Cereal plants are used to produce very nutritious roughage for livestock maintenance during winter and wheat forage is as extremely valuable for forage. Harvest residues are increasingly used for energy purposes why is the rate of increase in the use of alternative fuels is growing significantly. Commercial production should be economically and environmentally friendly so that renewable fuels are an adequate substitute for fossil fuels, at the same time protecting and caring for the environment. The paper examines three wheat genotypes in the goal to obtain biogas from plant biomass. The results showed that the genotype had a significant impact on biomass and biofuel productivity. The highest biomass and biogas yields were obtained in the varieties Simonida, 3.85 t ha-1 and 388.93 m3 ha-1. The values for biogas yield were higher in 2019 (386.00 m3 ha-1) compared to 2018 (352.55 m3 ha-1). Biomass yield was in a positive insignificant correlation with biogas yield (r = 0.43). The essence of converting harvest and all other plant residues into biofuels is not only obtaining as much energy as possible but also applying a sustainable production method from which everyone will have benefit
