This JVAP report identifies Australian agroforestry and fodder shrub species with the greatest potential for development as broadscale commercial woody biomass crops in the lower rainfall regions of southern Australia. It provides detailed information on species performance through evaluations of several FloraSearch field trials that commenced in 2004, 2005 and 2006, and is further bolstered by data collated from other existing trials and new surveys. It also has information on new research investigating several issues of woody crop agronomy and management practices and their influence on woody crop production.
