Abstract

Silvopasture is the planned and managed agroecosystem in which forage, livestock, and woody perennials are integrated "either simultaneously or sequentially on the same parcel of land." Silvopasture can help mitigate anthropogenic climate change through carbon sequestration in perennial vegetation....

Abstract

Maize (Zea mays L.) is the staple food crop grown by most smallholder farmers in South Africa. Decline in soil fertility and expensive chemical fertilisers affect maize production by these farmers. Smallholder farmers cannot afford chemical fertilisers because these are expensive. Agroforestry...

Abstract

Available water capacity (AWCA) is very important for agriculture and recovery of degraded area resulting from landslide and surface soil loss affected soil water storage. Maepoon sub-district is an area that affected by landslide in 2006. This study conducted with the aim at (1) measurement of the...

This paper discusses the Central American agroforestry systems Quesungual (QS) and Kuxur Rum (KR), a system that integrate basic grain crop production - mainly maize, common bean and sorghum - with multipurpose trees. A permanent soil cover with biomass enhances erosion protection, soil fertility...

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

Studies on the initial development of tree species in agroforestry systems are important, since they provide subsidies for the management of these agroecosystems. The objective of this research was to evaluate the survival and height growth of tree species changes in Amazonian agroforestry systems...
