Title:
Biofuel Feedstock Potential in the Chesapeake Bay - Rye, Barley and Switchgrass
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form:vector digital data
Online_Linkage: http://www.pasda.psu.edu
Description:
Abstract:
This layer shows the potential production of biofuel feedstocks, such as winter rye and barley on corn and soybean cropland, and switchgrass on failed, idle, fallow and abandoned cropland.  Areas and corresponding crop production totals are aggregated by HUC6 watershed boundaries for the Chesapeake Bay.
Purpose:
This dataset is intended to illustrate the potential for biofuel production in the Chesapeake Bay, in a manner that does not compete with current food or fiber production. This data was used in support of a Chesapeake Bay Commission report titled: "Chesapeake Biofuel Policies: Balancing Energy, Economy and Environment" published in 2010.
