The commercial reality of reproducing biomass from short rotation coppice

Aspects of Applied Biology ( 49): 71-84
The commercial reality of reproducing biomass from short rotation coppice
The development of Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) as a commercially viable crop in the UK faces considerable challenges. Agronomic techniques need to be developed that can reliably and consistently improve productivity, mechanization (of site preparation, planting and harvesting) needs to be improved to cope with larger scale plantations, and the costs of establishment need to be reduced.
