Speakers from France, Australia and around the world described how practices are increasingly popular, with the need to tackle soil erosion and cope with climate change making trees an ever more inportant ingredient for productive cropping and livestock farming. Providing a local perspective, British farmers who are already reaping the benefits of agroforestry shared their experiences.
