Abstract

Agroforestry is an age-old land-use system found around the world, which combines trees with crops and/or animals to increase overall productivity of the land. Brazil, one of the largest countries in the world, has vast acreages of industrial Eucalyptus plantings. Growing resistance to this large monoculture effort has prompted consideration of incorporating forestry tree species with agricultural plant combinations. Agroforestry is varied in central Brazil. Large industrial plantings are being installed. Many practices being evaluated are listed in this paper.
