Dryland salinity poses a significant threat to agriculture and rural communities throughout Australia. The establishment of woody vegetation in low rainfall regions has been identified as a possible option for mitigating land salinisation in Australia. RIRDC funded the Best Bets for Biomass project to investigate the markets and prospects for six selected products that could be produced from low rainfall grown woody biomass.

The report will be of particular interest to policy advisers and to R&D providers. (40 pages)
