In addition to improved soil fertility, water conservation, and diversified income streams for farmers, agroforestry also offers numerous other benefits. These include enhanced biodiversity, reduced soil erosion, improved air, and water quality, and increased resilience to climate change.
Agroforestry systems can also provide shade for crops, reducing heat stress and improving crop yields, and can help to mitigate the effects of extreme weather events such as floods and droughts. Additionally, the planting of trees in agroforestry systems can help to sequester carbon from the atmosphere, contributing to efforts to combat climate change.
