Advantages of Agro forestry
Agro forestry is full of benefits and benefits some benefits are summed up below –
- Increase in amount of yield – Crop yield is increased in agro forestry due to better climate and better growing conditions are formed in it for crops like – climate, moisture, alternate and adjacent cropping helps soil to retain its fertility back in less possible time. Plants are planted in an organized manner and according to the wind direction this provides short and small crops protection against high speed wind which spoils then and sometimes destroys them totally.
- Advantageous to livestock – Agro forestry helps livestock in every manner. It provides them with all the necessary needs that they demand to live according to different climate.
