The early development of RPM technology was directed towards survivability of forests in difficult soil and climatic conditions. The result was an all natural process that produced a robust root structure that not only achieved the highest potential rates of survivability, but also accelerated biomass growth rates to levels that are multiples ahead of its bareroot alternatives.
Increase Return On Investment
The combination of these two prominent features of the technology, has significant implications on the economic analysis, more specifically yield and return on investment, for many applications: biofuel, bioenergy, pulp/paper, carbon credits/sequestration, timber (saw logs), nut and fruit production, reforestation, and ecologic reclamation.
When we generate generic analysis with respect to each of these applications, we compute RPM economic benefits in the thousands of dollars per acre, when all-in costs (planting scheme, survivability, maintenance, replanting, monitoring, etc.) are considered.
This obviously implies millions of dollars of benefit for larger scaled projects of 1000 acres or more. We recommend that on every significant project, such comparative analysis should be developed and should form the basis of budgets, as well as project goals.
