How Biomass Crops Will Benefit Conservation Practices, Job Creation and Energy Security

Using biomass fuels in place of oil and gasoline will help us reduce our dependence on oil and improve our own energy and national security. Replacing these imported fuels with homegrown alternatives, we can begin to generate jobs at home and repair agricultural land suffering from soil erosion and monocultures by planting perennial biomass crops.

Federal policies will help implement programs and provide incentives for farmers to plant biomass crops on land that isn't in use.
