The Foundation of the Bioeconomy
As the foundation of the bioeconomy, poplar growers will play a key role in biofuel and bio-based chemical industries. AHB wants to help growers develop good practices that promote sustainable feedstock production. Currently, market opportunities for poplar in the Pacific Northwest are limited. The research presented here is in place to support poplar growers as new opportunities develop.
Poplar Grower Resources
Here, current and potential poplar growers can learn more about growing hybrid poplar as a short-rotation woody crop. Resources include detailed information on poplar pests, models to estimate poplar yields and the cost of production, and information on growing poplar for environmental benefits.
