The principles of sustainable agriculture have been expounded for centuries. The recognition of the need to produce crops in a way that will ensure continued cultivation and reliable food and fuel sources over decades and centuries has never been greater. As the biofuels industry continues to develop, increased scrutiny is being paid to production practices of biomass crops. Biofuel Crop Sustainability serves as a timely collection of the latest research on sustainable strategies and practices in a time of increased demand and competition for arable lands.
Biofuel Crop Sustainability is a broad-ranging reference written by leading researchers in the biofuels community. The book opens with chapters that explore sustainability issues around specific families of biomass crops, such as grains, oilseed crops, grasses, and canes. The final chapters look more broadly at issues common to all biofuel crop production. These chapters cover critical topics like nutrient management, maintaining soil quality, and food versus fuel production issues.
Providing timely coverage of an increasingly critical issue, Biofuel Crop Sustainability will be an essential volume for crop scientists, biofuels researchers, agroecologists, and others looking at the issue of agricultural sustainability.About the Author:
