    1) Agroforestry is any sustainable land-use system that maintains or increases total yields by combining food crops (annuals) with tree crops (perennials) and/or livestock on the same unit of land, either alternately or at the same time, using management practices that suit the social and cultural characteristics of the local people and the economic and eco­logical conditions of the . The potential land suitability assessment for tea is a crucial step in determining the environmental limits of sustainable tea production. The aim of this study was to assess land suitability to determine suitable agricultural land for tea crops in Sri Lanka.

Abstract This book is a very large compilation of information on agroforestry, addressed in particular to farmers, NGOs, foresters and all others who are interested in increasing tree planting on farmland, and set-aside lands on marginal sites.

Increasing Water Productivity in Agriculture Amede, T., Geheb, K. and Douthwaite, B. (b) Enabling the uptake of livestock–water productivity. However, it may be the only way to raise the productivity of the most degraded lands.

Furthermore, in many countries, fertile sites are reserved for agricultural activities. Given the dwindling reserves of good land and the increasing amount of degraded tropical lands, reforestation is a technology with potential to rehabilitate soils and to. Agroforestry Guides for Pacific Islands book An essential user-friendly resource for conserving and expanding the use of trees by Craig R.

Elevitch and Kim M. Wilkinson (Editors) Agroforestry is a traditional Pacific Island practice of integrating trees with crops and/or animals. Agroforestry is gaining increasing recognition as a way to combine sustained agricultural production and. In this article we will discuss about: 1.

A range of agriculture, forestry, fiscal, and other policy initiatives will be needed if the Asian Region is to preserve a significant proportion of its remaining million hectares of biologically diverse tropical forests and to sustain a timber industry beyond the year These forests have been reduced by one-half.

The main issues discussed in the book are broad and cover aspects of basic science, monitoring, and implementation. The opportunity to restore productivity of degraded lands through carbon sequestration is examined in detail.

This book will be of special interest to professionals in agronomy, soil science, and climatology. Abstract. Prosopis juliflora application in restoration of contaminated/degraded land, phytoremediation, CO 2 sequestration and carbonation technology, utilization for production of bioethanol, value additions and value chain products, medicinal uses, and ecosystem services are covered in this chapter.

Lacher, in Encyclopedia of the Anthropocene, Challenges. Effective conservation planning requires that we consider current, local impacts as well as broader geographic and temporal influences. Using long-term, landscape-scale planning to guide the prioritization of site-specific conservation action is becoming even more necessary in this era of rapid change.

Agroforestry (AF) is an ecofriendly and sustainable modern farming land use practice that maintains overall farm productivity by combining herbaceous food crops with woody perennial trees and livestock on the same piece of land, either alternately or at the same time, using scientific management practices that improve the socioeconomic condition of people.

It is the Cited by: In the early s, agriculture and livestock raising were the main sources of livelihood in Sudan for about 61 percent of the working population. Approximately one-third of the total area of Sudan, the largest country on the African continent is suitable for agricultural development and heavier rainfall in the south permits both agriculture and herding by nomadic tribes.

Now, due to increasing population and huge gap between demand and supply, forests were ruthlessly exploited to meet the increasing demand of fuel, fodder and timber. Hence, in the light of ever increasing demand, concept of multiple use of land with multipurpose tree species has become immensely important.

(b) The production response. Global livestock production has increased substantially since the s. Beef production has more than doubled, while over the same time chicken meat production has increased by a factor of nea made up of increases in both number of animals and productivity (figure 1).Carcass weights increased by about 30 per cent Cited by:   Traditionally agricultural intensification has been defined in three ways: (1) increasing yields per hectare; (2) increasing cropping intensity (i.e.

This is obtained simply by altering the genetic contribution of the ancestral species of sugarcane using traditional breeding methods. The resulting key feature is a significant increase in biomass by: Multipurpose legumes are known to perform multiple functions like grain legumes provide food, feed and facilitate soil nutrient management; herbaceous and tree legumes can restore soil fertility and prevent land degradation while improving crop and livestock productivity on a more sustainable basis.
