World Agroforestry Centre’s Impact Assessment Report

October 16, 2011

There’s an interesting report on the use of trees in agriculture — how intermixing the trees among the crop fields actually produces higher yields. Part of the problem discussed in the report is poor water management among rural farmers.

Here’s quote:

“In Africa, it is generally agreed that poor soil management — along with poor water management — is most greatly affecting yields,” explained study co-author Frank Place, head of the World Agroforestry Center’s Impact Assessment team.”

The results appear in the International Journal of Agricultural Sustainability.

I think our project fits right in.
