Abstract

The loss of productive capacity of pastures has a direct impact on livestock productivity and there is an inefficient use of natural resources. In this scenario, a production strategy that can reverse this degradation is the use of silvopastoral systems. This study aimed to evaluate the animal...

CAB ReviewFull Text

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...

AbstractFull Text

Small-scale farmers in the banana-coffee agro-zone of Central Uganda plant and maintain trees to provide a range of benefits. However, the impact of trees on soil fertility and crop yields is small. On many farms, trees exist in infinite numbers, compositions, with no proper spacing, sequencing and...
