Sustainable Biomass Use ✔
Development of an innovative, non-invasive measurement method for determining the potential yield of hedge banks and short-rotation forestry (SRF) in agriculture
The OG biomass is aiming to strengthen the agriculture and on the other hand to optimize the use of biomass . Thus a positive and lasting contribution to improving the climate , the protection of resources and the environment is made .
The goal of the project is to optimize hedge banks as protection for agricultural land. SRF should also be included in the observation, in order to enable a direct comparison (e.g. regarding biodiversity) between natural, habitat-linked and agriculturally-utilized agroforestry systems.
The innovation project is developing and validating a regionally and/or locally adjusted, yield-measuring based management system for the planting, cultivation and harvesting of economically and ecologically valuable hedge banks and SRF, i.e. sustainable agroforestry systems. The management system should also be modified to meet the needs of small and medium-sized conventional or ecological agricultural businesses which use the biomass produced to generate energy for their own use.
