Multi-storied Agroforestry Cropping Systems for Micro-Climatic Modification and Erosion Control in Nepal
PDF File Size: 29 KB | Download   
Natural hazards such as floods, landslides and drought occur frequently in different parts of Nepal with varying dimensions and magnitude. These hazards constitute the major causes of land degradation and deterioration of natural ecosystems. The introduction of multi-storied agro-forestry cropping system ensures use of the best combination of crop-tree inter cropping to reduce the impacts of floods, landslides and droughts. In addition, multi-storied agro-forestry systems ensure a more evenly distribution of income and employment throughout the year from harvesting different tree crops in different seasons. This variety of agro-forestry is characterized by the micro-climatic conditions created by the taller trees that benefit. crops underneath. Multi-storied cropping systems and agro-forestry systems help to reduce the impacts of hazards such as floods and droughts that lead to land degradation, while meeting the needs of local people for food, firewood, fodder and timber. Under the multi-storied cropping, crops underneath the tall trees or horticultural crops withstand shading effects and provide micro-climatic conditions needed by all the crops. This system has at least three layers of inter cropped plants of different heights.
