Technical Abstract: We are approaching the time when the needs of the world must be met using sustainable methods. Agriculture will be at the forefront of this movement and will help us to meet the food and feed needs of an ever growing population and it will play at least a part of the environmentally friendly energy used by the next generation. However, the current demand and availability of agricultural material depends on food demand, due to increased population and economic development, as well as effective strategies to utilize bioenergy and mitigate climate change.
