Conclusion on Planting Fast-Rotation Plants (FRP)

Written by Reinhard Sperr on January 17, 2018 in Energy Plants Knowledgebase wood fuel

The times where fast-rotation areas were considered as exotic crops of strongly experimental nature are definitely over. Great increments of cultivated areas in Austria and Germany, but also in South Europe, demonstrate that energy woods will play a significant role in future biomass providing. For a farmer this may mean, on the one hand, independence through self providing and, on the other hand, also an interesting occupation as wood seller or, in the best case, as a heat seller.

Once again, points to be considered:

  • Location
  • Plant distances, tree variety, rotation period
  • Harvesting machines and methods
  • Choice of genera and clones
  • Soil preparation
  • Weed control methods\
  • Planning of harvest logistics
  • Utilization
