Types of Agroforestry

Type of Agroforestry

• Mainly the agroforestry divide in five parts.
(1) Silvopasture
(2) Aelly Cropping
(3) Forest Farming
(4) Riparian Forest Buffers
(5) Windbreakers / Shelterbelts

(1) Silvopasture:- Silvopasture is the practices of integrating trees, forage and the grazing of domesticated animals in a mutually beneficial way. It utilizes the principles of managed grazing and it is one of several distinct forms of Agroforestry.


(2) Alley Cropping:- Alley Cropping is the planting of rows of trees or shrubs wide enough to create alleyways within which agronomic or forage crops are planted or produced. In this example of alley cropping, corn is grazing between rows of pecan trees.


(3) Forest Farming:- Forest Farming is the cultivation of high-value crops under the protection of a managed tree canopy. Forest farming can provide shorter-tern income while high-quality trees are being grown for wood or other tree products. Forest farming is most often used on private land to supplement family income.


(4) Riparian Forest Buffers:- A Riparian Forest Buffers or stream buffer is a vegetated area naer a stream, usually forest. Which help shade and partially protect the stream from the impact of adjacent land uses. It plays a key role in increasing water quality in associated streams, Rivera and lacks, thus providing environmental benefits. With the decline of many aquatic ecosystems due to agriculture, riparian buffers have become a very common conservation practice aimed at increasing water quality and reducing pollution.


(5) Windbreakers / Shelterbelts:- A windbreak is a planting usually made up of one or more rows of trees or shrubs planted in such a manner as to provide shelter from the wind and to protect soil from erosion. They are commonly planted in hedgerows around the edges of field on farms.
