The selection of the field sites for the chrono-sequence is underway

Nov 17, 2010

The selection of the field sites for the chrono-sequence is underway. Through the main grower’s consortium and biomass supply companies, 149 potential willow SRC plantations have been identified. The number of Miscanthus plantations on the list is also rising. The process of sub-selection from this list has now started and aims to maximize the geographical and age range covered whilst maintaining statistical power. The biochar for the field work will be produced at the University of Edinburgh using UK sourced Miscanthus early in the New Year. Field work will commence soon after.

Our thanks go to all the growers who have kindly supplied information about their plantations.
