Title: Biomass estimates


The JRC - Biomass estimates database quantifies the production and residues of agricultural biomass. It has been elaborated jointly by JRC and the Nova-Institute. The indicators estimated are the harvested biomass, the amount of agricultural residues with a distinction between used and non-used residues, the domestic extraction used (DEU), the Harvested area and the Yield of the domestic extraction used. The domestic extraction used (DEU) refers to the sum of the harvested biomass and used residues. All indicators are expressed in tonnes of fresh and dry matter. The scope of this database is all agricultural commodities, for each of the 28 EU Member states. Data are available from 1991 to 2013.
