Presented By: Dan Janzen
Event: ECHO East Africa Biennial Symposium 2023 Sustainable Agriculture Best Practices (2023-02-23)
Session: Agroforestry systems have a poor record of adoption/diffusion! New innovative systems prioritize placement of highest value crops, flexibility of pruning regimes for optimal diffused shade by time of day & year, and that match to crop needs for mulch or green manure. The presentation will feature quick & easy trellising, terracing/sloping agricultural land technology (SALT) and living fences.
