AbstractFull Text

This research's aim is to determine productivity of hybrid aspen (Populus tremula L. × Populus tremuloides Michx.) at the fifth year rotation period after managing it as agroforestry system together with perennial crops-reed canary grass (Phalaris arundinacea L.), festulolium (Festulolium pabulare) ...

AbstractFull Text

In temperate alley cropping agroforestry systems, light competition often limits the crop yield. The trees pruning and particularly pollarding reduces this competition. This practice results in three productions on the same field: crop, fuel or others purposes wood and timber wood. To be...

AbstractFull Text

Managing the interactions between trees, crops and animals is an on-going challenge for agroforestry farmers. This paper reports on interactions between trees, crops and both wild animals and livestock in the establishment years of a novel UK agroforestry system combining short rotation coppice for ...

AbstractFull Text

Agroforestry systems (AFS) are considered to be a sustainable agricultural practice. However, at present, yield and quality data on arable crops in temperate AFS are scarce. Here we assessed the influence of tree rows of contrasting age on the yield and quality of key western European arable crops. ...

AbstractFull Text

Tree root pruning in agroforestry could reduce water competition and increase the crop yield. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of tree root pruning on the yield of winter cereals in a mature Mediterranean alley cropping system considering crop phenology and the position in the...

AbstractFull Text

Slovakian agroforestry does not officially exist yet, although remnants of these traditional systems developed in the past, which have high environmental and cultural value, are still to be found. Slovakia due to its natural conditions also has great potential for establishment of modern...

AbstractFull Text

The production of medicinal plants could be combined with the production of timber from high value trees as Prunus avium L. because many medicinal plants are characterised by its capacity to growth under a partial shade. This type of agroforestry practice called silvoarable or forest farming...

AbstractFull Text

Intercropping or grazing of orchards or groves of fruit trees (e.g. olive, carob, pine-nut, walnut, almond, chestnut, apple, pear), or plantations of trees grown for high value timber (e.g. walnut and wild cherry) can be characterized as a "high-value tree agroforestry systems". The systems can be...

AbstractFull Text

In Galicia (NW Spain) the productivity of the silvopastoral systems can be limited by the high soil acidity, which decreases the availability of nutrients to the pasture and trees. Liming and fertilisation with sewage sludge could improve the soil fertility, favouring the tree growth and the...

AbstractFull Text

Within a pesticide-free agroforestry cropping system, carabids' communities are trapped once over years and, over weeks for one given year in order to test (1) the ageing of the cropping system, (2) the impacts of the presence of different crops and of their related agricultural practices. Main...
