Agroforestry

Agroforestry is a system of land use where woody perennials are deliberately used on the same land management units as annual agricultural crops and/or animals, either sequentially or simultaneously, with the aim of obtaining greater outputs on a sustained basis. “Here land is used for agriculture, forestry and animal husbandry.

Depending upon the situation we may also have a mix of three basic elements i.e., agriculture, forestry and animal husbandry.

town/city must be able to meet firewood, fodder and small timber needs by growing trees and shrubs in the land available in a cooperative system.
