Agroforestry as a Sustainable Ancient Agriculture Practice: Potential for Small-Scale Farmers and Ranchers in Dry Regions
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractHuman activities have contributed to climate change in many ways, including unsustainable agriculture activities such as monocropping and intensive use of chemicals, which contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. The problems caused by these conventional systems have led to the search for more sustainable and regenerative agricultural practices that will support our ecosystems without compromising future food security. This is especially critical in areas such as the southwestern United States (U.S.), with its arid conditions and climate extremes. This bulletin summarizes the main agroforestry practices, their importance, practical applications, and implementation challenges for small-scale farmers and ranchers in the southwestern U.S.
