It is well known that sustainable feedstock development is the cornerstone of the bioeconomy, but does sustainable biomass production encompasses things like wildlife impact, and more than just reliable annual yields of high-quality feedstock? Biomass provides habitat for our nation’s wildlife resources, a source for capturing carbon in our soils, material that can intercept and store water and nutrients, and organic material that can keep our soils healthy. In turn, a healthy ecosystem will provide better quality biomass.
A holistic agronomic approach, including biomass wildlife impact consideration, is needed for a healthy bioeconomy. Consultants with expertise in agronomy, landscape ecology, botany, and nutrient management should be hired early on to provide best management practices for sustainable production, maintenance, and harvesting of feedstocks to ensure the long-term viability of those resources for both the production facility and the environment. These experts can help reduce costs to producers by ensuring optimum seeding rates and levels of inputs such as water or fertilizers are used, which will in turn help the long-term sustainability of biomass yields and provide environmental protections.
