A Multi-Factor Analysis of Sustainable Agricultural Residue Removal Potential

  title={A Multi-Factor Analysis of Sustainable Agricultural Residue Removal Potential},
  author={Jared M. Abodeely and David Muth and Paul R. Adler and Eleanor E. Campbell and Kenneth Mark Bryden},
Agricultural residues have significant potential as a near term source of cellulosic biomass for bioenergy production, but sustainable removal of agricultural residues requires consideration of the critical roles that residues play in the agronomic system. Previous work has developed an integrated model to evaluate sustainable agricultural residue removal potential considering soil erosion, soil organic carbon, greenhouse gas emission, and long-term yield impacts of residue removal practices… Expand
