Australia faces increasing impact on its agricultural productivity, water quality and environmental health as a result of dryland salinity. Much of the effort to date to address this threat has focussed on replacing deep-rooted perennial vegetation in landscapes cleared for agriculture. If a commercially viable option for replacing deep-rooted perennial vegetation can be developed then it is hoped that efforts to address dryland salinity will increase. This report discusses the objective to develop a commercially viable biomass production system that integrates within broadacre farming systems to produce feedstock that can be processed to provide a source of renewable energy.
