North Central SARE Portfolio Brief Sheet
Agroforestry helps farmers diversify – products and income. Trees that produce an annual fruit or nut crop can also be grown for a future timber harvest. Shrubs can be grown instead of, or with, trees and can produce a yearly crop. Forages and other fruit, vegetable or specialty crops can be harvested for market or grazed by livestock. NCR-SARE has invested in more than 50 research and educa- tion projects to help achieve the sustainability of agroforestry operations and to optimize production, discover or develop markets, and enhance environmental benefits.
Only available online
SARE produces an extensive library of books, bulletins and online resources for farmers, ranchers, and educators.
