Short-rotation planting (SRP) or energy wood of fast-growing trees (poplars, willows, and robinia) grown on garmlands or grasslands represent a valuable and necessary alternative for biogenic raw material supply already now and, first of all, also in future.
Why Short-Term Farming?
The first supply difficulties due to the growing number of biomass heat plants and also small heating appliances in private sector, as well as also the growing need for pulp/panel/saw industries make the search for alternatives for conventional energy wood from forestry more actual than ever.
The use of energy wood can also, on the other hand, help utilize below-average lands reasonably, create an alternative for leasing that is often not very interesting, as well as provide the lucrative possibility of additional incomes for farming enterprises.
Moreover, the topic of independency and supply security is now for every forward-looking farmer a very important point.
