RENTABILIDADE POR M³ DE DIFERENTES ESPÉCIES DE EUCALIPTO PARA O OESTE PAULISTA
Eucalyptus is the largest source of renewable wood in Brazil and has been expanding in recent years for various purposes. However, production is consolidated in traditional areas or is linked to new manufacturing industries. The West of Sao Paulo (Oeste Paulista) is a region strategically located among all the production chains, but with little investment and without any study on the region's production capacity. We have analyzed and outlined the region with similar climatic and ground characteristics to verify possibilities of investments and it were planted 100 eucalyptus trees of the 10 species most currently used in Brazil totaling 1000 samples which were monitored from 2013 to 2016 to analyze which species would have better average increment of wooden volume. Among those with better gains, we point out the species 1277 and I144, which have adapted better and the specie E. tolleriana, which got the worse performance. Furthermore, we have analyzed domestic prices and we have indicated the species that would give greatest invoicing for farmers who opt for this investment.
