Investment Alternatives for Black Walnut Plantation Management
Abstract:Black walnut plantation management is a financially viable land-use alternative. Management for timber production alone yields a suitable return; the addition of nut production further increases expected gains. Multi-cropping adds yet another dimension of agricultural crop production or livestock grazing to wood and nut production with corresponding increased financial returns. However, multi-cropping brings a greater degree of risk and complexity in management.
