Expert Answer:

Biogas is a mixture of gases and its major constituent is methane. It is produced by the anaerobic degradation of animal wastes like cow dung or also plants wastes. in the absence of oxygen. Cow-dung and plant wastes contain a lot of complex carbon compounds like carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. So, yes slurry of vegetable waste, harvesting crops can also be used as slurry in the biogas plant. They are all organic wastes. There can be a slight possibility on the quantity of gas produced.
