A new study is looking at whether this concept is environmentally and economically viable

Abstract

Agroforestry systems (AFS) have a large potential to deliver a wide range of ecosystem services (ES). In field and crop management, changes to factors such as regulatory ES delivery are rarely taken into account, in part due to the paucity of detailed quantification of how trees affect biophysical...

AbstractFull Text

Agroforestry practices are excellent tools to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Climate change will increase the summer drought period in the south of Europe. Feed shortage can be overcome by the use of tree leaves and soft branches to feed to livestock. The leaves of mulberry are known to be...

Grassland resources for extensive farming systems in marginal lands: major drivers and future scenarios. Proceedings of the 19th Symposium of the European Grassland Federation, Alghero, Italy, 7-10 May 2017, 2017, pp 585-587
Abstract

Background and aims: Root system architecture regulates belowground access to soil resources. Variation in root architecture is important in agroforestry systems given management objectives to optimize resource acquisition between trees and crops. However, the distributions of live tree roots in...

Abstract

A stumbling block to the adoption of silvoarable agroforestry systems is the lack of quantitative knowledge on the performance of different crops when competing for resources with trees. In North-Western Europe, light is likely to be the principal limiting resource for understorey crops, and most...

Abstract

The vision of the first Agroforestry Conference held in Guelph, Canada was "to provide a forum within which people working in temperate North America agroforestry systems could interact and exchange idea". Agroforestry research has progressed considerably over the last 25 years. The wealth of...

Abstract

Quantifying the impacts of agroforestry systems (AFS) on habitat conservation remains a challenge due to difficulties in accounting for differences in scales, AFS configurations, and inadequate measures of species dynamics within practical time frames. The field of soundscape ecology offers new...

Abstract

White clover/perennial ryegrass mixtures (Trifolium repens L., Lolium perenne L.) are potential understory candidates for temperate agroforestry systems. A 2-year artificial shade experiment was conducted to determine the effects of shade on herbage production and quality and on changes in sward...
