Assessment of Social, Economic and Environmental Implication of Short Rotation Coppice

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterResearchpeer-review

• SRCs have higher C sequestration potential than conventional arable land because of more biomass production and litter accumulation.
• Economic benefits of SRCs depend on the final use of products, e.g. wood chips and bioenergy on the expense of food crops.
• SRCs are advantageous for soil and biodiversity over arable crops, control erosion, provide habitats for wild fauna.
• The main reasons of famers for not being willing to adapt SRCs plantation on agricultural land includes: committing land for a long time period, lack of appropriate machinery, lack of knowledge and awareness of profitability of SRC crops, and time to financial return.
