The intensification of agroforestry by tree domestication for enhanced social and economic impact - Mini Review.


Agroforestry can be used to improve the productivity of staple food crops by improving soil fertility and promoting agroecosystem function. The domestication of agroforestry trees producing marketable products then intensifies the agroforestry system and leads to marketing, trade and business opportunities that improve farmers' livelihood. Together, these steps provide a generic and adaptable model for more sustainable agriculture in the tropics, which builds on the success of, and enhances the outputs of, the Green Revolution.
