A New Methodological Study to Allocate Energy Crops at Different Scale Levels: a Multidirectional Approach

N. Di Virgilio, S. Fazio, A.L. Fernando & A. Monti
Generally, the land allocation scenarios for biomass crops are based on crop requirements and environmental characteristics, mostly including climate and soil variables, whereas the backward crop effect on the same environment have been poorly considered or totally ignored. Nonetheless, despite the crop performance can be considerable under specific conditions, the environmental vulnerability to a crop-specific impact could lead to negative consequences. A crop could be in fact well adapted to a given environment in term...
