Siberian elm (Ulmus pumilla) may be an interesting alternative for cold semiarid environments. In Soria (1000 M.A.S.L, continental Central Spain)  low temperatures during winter are lower than  -15ºC, average rain is 380mm and some trials have achieved yields between 7-15 odt/ha.year in a short rotation coppice pattern (cutting every 3 years).

Sweet Sorghum allow the production of sugar stalks for ethanol. Nevertheless sustainability assessments in many studies report a better performance of fiber sorghums for electricity. Companies in marginal areas of sugarcane consider sorghum for worse soils to feed boilers and complement bagasse in the electricity production on their plants.

All over the world, marginal lands allow different approaches for sustainable feedstock production without disruption of food systems. Photo: Above margianl sides of productive fields in South America. Below: tropical agriculture with papaya in agroforestry systems and Guinea grass in low productive areas of sugarcane.

olive prunings  used to burn aside the grove. Today this has changed and several companies developed interesting business units in cooperation with farmers. Prunings are used to produce electricity in Andalucia (Spain)

Guinea grass growing in unfertile soils can reach a ver high Nitrogen Use Efficiency. If fertilized properly, the crop can reach yields higher than 40 dried ton / hectare each year.

Highest yields of guinea grass can be similar to Napier grass. But if obtained, guinea grass can be much cheaper feeedstock as establishment costs are much lower
