Course Description & Objectives: 

This course aims at creating an understanding of agroforestry as an integral part of land-use systems.  Although agroforestry has been practiced for a long time, only recently has it received the attention of professional foresters and become a subject of research and education. It has been incorporated in education and training programs at an unprecedented level since 1982. Although its name suggests a new agricultural fad, agroforestry is actually one of the oldest and most successful agricultural practices around the world. It is the result of generations of trial and error and depends heavily on the farmer’s knowledge of the land and the plants and animals living in it. Nothing in agroforestry is new. In fact, much of it is common sense. This course therefore, examines past agroforestry practices, experiences and knowledge as well as the recent developments and research findings in agroforestry.

Learning Outcomes: 

By the end of the course, students are expected to be familiar with:·      the concepts and principles of agroforestry (AF);·      the complexity and diversity of AF systems;·      improved and appropriate AF technologies especially for the tropics;·      recent research and development initiatives in AF;·      problems and methodologies of AF research;·      potentials of AF in land management, food security in developing countries.
