Abstract

The objective of this study was to ascertain monetary status of cropping systems, practiced for two consecutive years under Shivalik Ranges of outer Himalayas in Himachal Pradesh, India, combining medicinal and aromatic herbs with commercial timber species. Four herbal crops namely Ocimum sanctum [...

Abstract

It is argued that when reforesting agricultural sites in southeastern USA, planting fast-growing tree species such as cottonwood (Populus deltoides), alone or in concert with heavy-seeded species, represents a superior alternative to monotypic plantings of oaks. Fast-growing trees can rapidly...

Abstract

An account of the economics, energy potential, and environmental value of short rotation coppice forestry (in Italy). The species most frequently used are Robinia pseudoacacia, Salix sp. and Populus hybrids. Data are tabulated to illustrate typical start-up costs, production costs for 8, 16 and 24...

Abstract

The market, production and economic aspects of the potential use of perennial biomass crops as alternative crops for the UK are discussed with particular reference to Miscanthus and Arable Energy Coppice (AEC, Salix and Populus spp.). Miscanthus is harvested annually and is potentially very...

Abstract

Data are tabulated on climatic factors, diameter and volume increments, costs per hectare, yield and irrigation schedules for trial plots of Populus 'I-214' growing in the Po valley, N. Italy. The plots were already established in 1963, and data for 1967-77 are compared with data for 1978-88....

Abstract

A comparison (using yield tables and production costs) of growth and economic returns of two poplar [Populus] clones grown since the 1950s in central Sicily. P. 'I-214', introduced in 1952, is grown on intensive, irrigated, 11-year rotations on several forest farms. A naturalized P. canadensis ...

Abstract

Short rotation intensive culture (SRIC) plantations of Populus 'NE-388' in Pennsylvania were analysed to determine a least-cost method of supplying feedstock for liquid fuel manufacturing. Plantations were established at a spacing of 0.48 m2 and were managed with or without fertilizer application....

Abstract

An analysis of the development of poplar [Populus sp.] silviculture in N. Italy, which compares costs and stumpage prices for the period 1950-1985 with those of principal alternative crops (maize, rice and cereals). Data are presented on: costs of establishing and tending poplar plantations over 10 ...

Abstract

Financial and energy costs were analysed for establishing commercial scale Populus 'NE-388' plantations in Pennsylvania, USA. Total establishment costs were $1249 per ha and energy input 16 205 MJ/ha; planting accounted for 73% of these and herbicide spraying 22%. Establishment represented 36% of...
