Agroforestry on arable land should prove profitable | Features | Farmers Guardian

Agroforestry on arable land should prove profitable | Features | Farmers Guardian | Agroforestry | Scoop.it

ONE Cambridgeshire tenant farmer takes a pioneering approach by mixing in apple trees with his arable crop. Tom Levitt finds out how Stephen Briggs believes agroforestry can help diversify UK farms. ...

 

The term agroforestry in its simplest form means ‘growing trees on farms’. It dates back thousands of years, but has almost entirely disappeared in the UK with the consolidation of smaller plots into larger farms and the advent of monoculture farming.

 

Small woodlands may still be present on farms, but are generally seen as an obstacle to machinery, or a waste of potential cropland.

 

Stephen is among those who are adamant agroforestry can help increase the productivity of farms as well as bringing potentially valuable biodiversity benefits.

Farming News - FAO calls for governmental support for Agroforestry

Farming News - FAO calls for governmental support for Agroforestry | Agroforestry | Scoop.it

A UN organisation has said that millions of people could escape poverty, hunger and environmental degradation if countries put more effort into promoting agroforestry, an integrated approach combining trees with crop or livestock production.

 

The agroforestry sector is a significant source both of local commodities such as fuelwood, timber, fruit and fodder for livestock as well as global ones such as coconut, coffee, tea, rubber and gum. Almost half the world's agricultural land has at least 10 percent tree cover, making agroforestry critical to the livelihoods of millions.

 

In a new guide published on Tuesday (5th February) and aimed at policy advisors, NGOs and governmental institutions, the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation suggested ways in which agroforestry can be integrated into national strategies and how policies can be adjusted to better suit the model of sustainable farming.
