Progress on the chronosequence site selection and sampling.

May 6, 2011

Progress on the chronosequence site selection and sampling.

From across Great Britain 50 SRC Willow sites (from a list of 85 individual growers) and 33 Miscanthus sites have been selected and categorised (in terms of soil characteristics, crop age and prior land-use) with a further 10 Miscanthus sites awaiting categorisation.

Soil sampling and biochar application is currently underway at these sites using a tested and agreed procedure.

Our thanks go to all the growers who have kindly supplied information and help with this.
