The Lot 1 Innovation project ‘Accelerating Willow Breeding and Deployment’ project led by Rothamsted Research has just released a ‘Growers guide to short rotation coppice willow (SRCw) varieties for biomass’. The guide contains information to help growers minimise risk by making informed choices when choosing to grow short rotation coppice willow (SRCw) for biomass. The data is based on a multi-site statistical analysis from trials planted between 1997 and 2016.
The guide will be updated as new data becomes available and it is hoped that the results from the Biomass Connect trial data will form part of these future updates.
