Planting trees and crops together.
Land use system in which woody perennials are grown for wood production with agricultural crops, with or without animal production.
Land-use systems that combine agriculture and forestry practices to create a more holistic, integrated, profitable, and sustainable system of food and fiber production.
Agroforestry is the conscious management of trees and shrubs on the farm to enhance whole-farm productivity and sustainability.
growing crops and trees together so that both benefit.

Agroforestry is a land use system in which woody perennials are grown with agricultural crops (together with other land uses, like animal production).

Agroforestry aims to combine agriculture and forestry technologies to create more integrated, diverse, productive & sustainable land-use systems. (see also permaculture)
