Increased Uses for Wood on the Farm

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

The author believes that chipped wood can aid agriculture in a number of ways. Research has determined that sawdust or shavings will improve soil structure and produce long-life humus, provide a good mulch, and make acceptable animal bedding or chicken litter. Portable wood chippers are now available for use by farmers. Costs, per ton use, of wood chips are less than the costs of material they could replace. The possibilities for the use of fragmented wood on farms offer a real challenge to foresters.
