There are a myriad of advantages of agroforestry which is why it is becoming more popular. The interaction between the livestock and the crop is very beneficial because the production increases. That means more crops and more cash flow if it is for profit. The soil is conserved too and, the soil is improved too.
It has been proven that the atmospheric carbon is elevated too which is priceless and...biodiversity is increased as well.
There are a ton of reasons that agroforestry is a very wise and very responsible thing to do. As the younger generation strives to move forward to save the earth and make great choices with what to do with it, they are leaning to measures such as agroforestry in order to make it all happen.
Agroforestry help conserve the soil and improve soil quality: it prevents and control soil erosion by wind. Field shelterbelts consist of tall, long tress that do not compete with nearby crops and do not occupy much land.
Increase crop yield: research has shown that crop yields in fields that have adjacent shelterbelts have increased. This is due to better moisture and snow control technique, which help control climatic effects that lessen damage to crops.
It helps save energy: shelterbelts reduce the amount of heat loss in winter; this means less amount of energy is required to heat confinement buildings.
It help sustain biodiversity, it helps with snow control, it is helpful in sequestration of greenhouse gases, it also provides protect and feeding for livestock in winter.
