willow-researchThese pages provide an overview of the multi-disciplinary research and extension activities at Cornell University on shrub willow (Salix spp.). Our goal is to improve our understanding of:

  • Woody plant biology,
  • Biotic and abiotic stressors,
  • Plant pest ecology,
  • and perennial bioenergy crop agronomy.

Doing so will support expanded commercial deployment of sustainable shrub willow bioenergy crops.
