Agriculture provides food, fibre and bioenergy products, but increased production can be sustainably achieved only if negative impacts on, e.g., soils, water, biodiversity and climate are avoided or minimized. Agriculture can also provide other social and economic benefits, ranging from rural income and employment, to the conservation of cultures, and pleasing visual landscapes. Many risks associated with conventional agricultural production systems and fossil fuels could be mitigated or avoided, through the development of sustainable production systems for lignocellulosic bioenergy crops.||Type of material:||Technical Report||Publisher:||IEA Bioenergy||Copyright (published version):||2018 IEA Bioenergy||Keywords:||Bioenergy; Fossil energy systems; Bioenergy products; Agricultural production systems; Fossil fuels; Sustainable production systems; Lignocellulosic bioenergy crops||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
