Which Tree? Where? Why?

Submitted by on February 5, 2018 – 11:12 amNo Comment

(World Agroforestry Centre)  While India has a world-first national policy for agroforestry, aka trees on farms, farmers in different agro-climatic zones need help with which trees to grow. A new book is now here to help.

“With multiple research initiatives underway, a lot of scientific knowledge on different species of agroforestry has been generated. Promising Agroforestry Tree Species in India is an assemblage of useful knowledge,” said Trilochan Mohapatra, secretary of the Department of Agricultural Research and Education and director-general of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research. “This book will be useful for farmers, planners, forest officials, and teachers and students of agroforestry.”

Promising Agroforestry Tree Species in India is an outcome of a long-term collaboration between the Central Agroforestry Research Institute of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, and the World Agroforestry Centre. The book identifies 25 agroforestry species based on their usefulness for timber, fuel, fodder, fruit, biofuel, raw material for industrial use and medicinal ingredients.
