Agroforestry

From Field to Forest

Agroforestry incorporates the conservation and restoration of trees alongside crops and livestock. Agroforestry is especially important in small and densely populated regions, where land is scarce. It has many ecological benefits and has been shown to improve soil health and crop yields; agroforestry therefore offers a clear incentive for farmers to transition from mono-culture farming to resilient and profitable systems that function more like forests than farms.
