DescriptionThe Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley (LMAV) offers an ecological niche for short-rotation woody crop (SRWC) production by mating marginal agricultural land with optimal growing conditions. Approximately 1.7 million ha within the LMAV consist of Sharkey shrink-swell clays. They are considered marginal in terms of traditional agricultural productivity due to their hydric characteristics (Vepraskas and Richardson 1997). However, these soils are ideal for SRWC production using native, welladapted species.
