Title: Land resource requirements for bioenergy in India
Authors: Elgy, John
Halperin, Dan
Keywords: Bioenergy
GEPIC model
Land resources
Issue Date: Aug-2011
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: This study presents a two stage process to determine suitable areas to grow fuel crops: i) FAO Agro Ecological Zones (AEZ)procedure is applied to four Indian states of different geographical characteristics; and ii) Modelling the growth of candidate crops with GEPIC water and nutrient model, which is used to determine potential yield of candidate crops in areas where irrigation water is brackish or soil is saline. Absence of digital soil maps, paucity of readily available climate data and knowledge of detailed requirements of candidate crops are some of the major problems, of which, a series of detailed maps will evaluate true potential of bio fuels in India.
