Add Diversity to the Farm Landscape

Agroforestry practices provide a variety of ways that farmers and landowners can add diversity to the farm landscape. Some of the agroforestry practices are used primarily for their conservation benefits, such as windbreaks and riparian forest buffers. Other approaches can provide economic opportunities as well as add to plant diversity and habitat on the farm. These latter practices include alley cropping, silvopasture, and forest farming. A wealth of information on these practices is available from the University of Missouri Center for Agroforestry, which produces not only publications and videos but also offers a variety of educational programs on agroforestry.
