Agroforestry: Theory and Practices

Antony Joseph Raj (Author) S.B. Lal (Author)

Agroforestry is practiced by millions of farmers, and has been a feature of agriculture for millennia. Agroforestry is the only land use system able to solve global issues such as climate change, biodiversity conservation, decreasing soil health and quality of land resources, energy and economic crises, food security and poverty eradication, etc. and application of agroforestry innovations will help to attain Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This textbook is one of the finest books on agroforestry that offers a global review of the approaches, tools and technologies, research innovations and real-world practices in agroforestry. The book offers a comprehensive guide to basic principles, techniques and applications, integrative strategies, economic and environmental concerns, and future trends in agroforestry in different regions of the world. It will help all scientists, students, professors, farmers, foresters, decision-makers, and politicians who wish to build a safe land use system for food, energy and better environment for future generations. This textbook will enormously benefit the students for their preparation of competitive exams like UPSC-Civil Services, UPSC-Indian Forest Service, ICAR-ARS Scientist/NET Exam, ICFRE Forestry Scientist Exam, State Public Service Commission Exams and University Entrance Exam for admission to M.Sc. and Ph.D. programmes.
