Abstract Planting second generation (2G) energy crops such as Miscanthus and Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) Willow can provide an opportunity for farmers to diversify their income and increase the productivity of their land. To understand more about how farmers have integrated 2G energy crops into their wider farm business, the ETI commissioned three case studies to capture successful transitions to Miscanthus and SRC Willow, examining the financial impact of the crops and understanding how the farmers have optimised the way they use their land to minimise any impact on food production.
