    Description

    Interest in developing domestically produced bio-based fuel systems has been responsible for a large increase in short rotation woody crop (SRWC) research. Much of this work has been used in developing regional production estimates for woody crops like cottonwood (Populus deltoides Bartr. ex Marsh.) and eucalyptus (Eucalyptus spp.) in the Southeast. SRWC systems are designed as purpose-grown bioenergy crops that are intensively managed and utilize fast-growing tree species (White 2010). These systems are characterized by high planting densities of advanced genetic material with high inputs (e.g., fertilizer, irrigation) and short rotations to produce yields that can exceed 50 oven dry tons/ha/yr (Adegbidi and others 2003).
