Cultivation of multipurpose trees in rain water harvesting systems in the arid zone of Israel

Cultivation of multipurpose trees in rain water harvesting systems in the arid zone of Israel

Commonwealth Forestry Review 67(4): 339-349

Data are given on fresh and oven-dry above-ground biomass yields, energy production and fodder characteristics of Eucalyptus occidentalis and Acacia salicina grown over 2- or 4-yr rotations in 0.35-ha rainfall harvesting basins in Wadi Mashash, Israel. Mean annual precipitation was 115 mm and no supplementary irrigation was given.
