Managing Harvests

Carbon Cycle

Growing Energy Crops is a key part of carbon fixing and carbon cycling: one hectare of SRC willow produces the equivalent energy of 5,700 litres of oil. By growing energy crops on YOUR farm, you can increase your efforts to protect our atmosphere from damaging greenhouse gasses. Every willow tree planted helps remove CO2 from the air by storing it in roots and stems through its natural respiration processes.
