Caption: Willow, (Salix sp.) grown for biomass fuel. Farmer inspects his plantation of fast growing willow. This plant is grown to produce biomass for burning at biomass power stations. Biomass burning is a more environmentally friendly method of fuel production as it produces reduced levels of greenhouse gases and reduces the reliance on fossil fuels. Willow is fast growing and produces high yields, making it an attractive alternative crop for farmers.
