Agroforestry Practices, Planning, and Design

Agroforestry practices help landowners diversify products, markets, and farm income; improve soil and water quality; and reduce erosion, non-point source pollution and flood damage. The integrated practices of agroforestry enhance land and aquatic habitats for fish and wildlife and improve biodiversity while sustaining land resources for generations to come. 

Developed by the The Center for Agroforestry at the University of Missouri in 2013, the Training Manual for Applied Agroforestry Practices and the Handbook for Agroforestry Planning and Design are companion pieces that provide easy-to-use information about agroforestry.
