As the AFINET project comes to an end, there is a wealth of technical articles, factsheets, and video tutorials that are all available through the website here.
Agroforestry is a type of climate-smart agriculture (CSA) practice of deliberately integrating woody vegetation (trees or shrubs) with crop and/or animal systems to benefit from the resulting ecological and economic interactions. The AFINET project aimed to foster exchange and knowledge transfer between science and farmers.
If you access the website and click on materials you will find lots of information on the various aspects of agroforestry and lots of examples of farmers who are involved in the practices.
Some of the technical factsheets include:
- Managing hedges for firewood production
- Importance of browing on shrubs
- Productive use of the tree row understorey
- Trees for shade , shelter, survival and body maintenance
- Alley cropping diversifies your farm and improves the environment
The AFINET Knowledge Cloud (KC) is an online source of all kind of information about agroforestry. It integrates and synthesizes existing pools of information. It includes knowledge coming from the Regional Agroforestry Innovation Networks (RAINs), innovative practices and experiences, regional, national and international project results, as well as grey and scientific literature.
