Eastern Black Walnut Plantations: An Economically Viable Option for Conservation Reserve Lands Within the Corn Belt
Abstract:The financial returns to establishing eastern black walnut plantations in the Corn Belt region are financially acceptable. Roughly one million acres lend themselves to walnut culture. Stumpage price and site quality reflected through land price influence the level of returns realized. These plantations can provide a viable land use and investment alternative in utilizing erodible land, in diversifying the rural economy, and over the long run in supplementing farm income. North. J. Appl. For. 4:158-160, Sept. 1987.
