AGROFORESTRY: THE ART OF INTEGRATION
Agroforestry is the smart integration of trees into farming systems. Unlike full-sun fields, vulnerable and contributing to ecosystems degradation, agrofrestry is a way to preserve productive ecosystems and adapt to climate change. The trees provide multiple services for improved quality and long-term sustainability of the production.
Different agroforestry models with trees integrated in the perimeter of fields, intercropped, or at landscape level will deliver a mix a various ecosystem services for the farmers.
