Coppice in demand

LAND for testing short-rotation coppice and poplar is in demand throughout the country as part of a national trial to identify the impact of local conditions on crop production.

The joint effort between British Biogen and the Forestry Commission has already signed up 25 participants. Another 20 lowland sites are needed for planting next spring. Applications are sought by Aug 15. Details from British Biogen at 22 Long Acre, London (01435-882228). &#42
