Best Practice Guidelines for Managing Water for Bioenergy Feedstock Production.

Feb 2015

Best Management Practices (BMPs) have been developed and implemented since the early 1970s to ensure that land management for wood fiber and agricultural crop production can be conducted with minimum impact on the environment, particularly water quality. Although BMPs were originally designed to minimize water quality impacts, they can be used for a variety of environmental concerns. The use of BMPs is widespread in developed countries and it varies from mandatory to voluntary.
