Agroforestry refers to land use systems in which trees or shrubs are grown in association with agricultural crops, or pastures and livestock.

From its inception, it has contained a strong element of soil management. Well-designed and managed agroforestry systems have the potential to control run-off and erosion, maintain soil organic matter and physical properties, and.

Agroforestry is a land use management system in which trees or shrubs are grown around or among crops or pastureland. This intentional combination of agriculture and forestry has varied benefits, including increased biodiversity and reduced erosion.

Agroforestry practices have been successful in sub-Saharan Africa and in parts of the United States. Agroforestry, the practice of integrating trees and woodland areas into agricultural land, offers significant ecological and economic benefits.

This intersection of forestry and agriculture represents a great opportunity as the necessity for more efficient and ecologically friendly food production systems grows more urgent.

(Eds.) Free Preview. Most agricultural systems use annual crops, where the majority of the plant material is harvested or disposed in waste from husks, shells, etc.

In perennial agroforestry systems, however, most of the plant biomass remains on the land, and only a small percentage is harvested. Multistrata agroforestry can be integrated into some existing agricultural systems; others can be converted or restored to it.

If adopted on another million hectares byfrom million hectares currently, gigatons of carbon dioxide could be sequestered. By these means, agroforestry can make a major contribution to sustainable land use.

The previous edition of this book, entitled Agroforestry for Soil Conservation (), was based on indirect evidence from agriculture, forestry and soil science. The present work provides a new synthesis, drawing on over published sources dating largely Cited by:.

Agroforestry is a land-use management system in which trees and shrubs are grown either on arable land along with crops or on pastureland. Different basic agroforestry systems exist, where the age of the trees and the distribution and arrangement of shrubs and trees differ considerably between the different systems.Agroforestry is a collective name for land-use systems and technologies where woody perennials (such as trees, shrubs, palms, or bamboos) are deliberately used on the same land-management unit as agricultural crops and/or animals, in some form of.

The ambition of the EURAF Conference is accelerating inspiring transitions towards agroforestry as sustainable land use, including the role that agroforestry has to play in order to fight against climate change.
