Research Project: Enabling Sustainable Landscape Design for Continual Improvement of Operating Bioenergy Supply Systems

Location: Soil Management Research

Project Number: 5060-21220-007-02-I
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Apr 1, 2016
End Date: Sep 30, 2021

Develop and implement a landscape design process for integrating cellulosic feedstock production into existing agricultural and forestry systems while maintaining or enhancing environmental and socio-economic sustainability including ecosystem services and food, feed and fiber production.

ARS Resilient Economic Agricultural Practive (REAP) research locations will participate in a multi-agency project designed to develop spatially explicit plans for resource allocation and management to integrate cellulosic bioenergy feedstocks into Midwestern and other cropping and land-use systems.
