Modern agroforestry systems

combine the cultivation of arable crops with trees, are managed using modern agricultural engineering methods, and are economically attractive. 

Focus of our research

Further  current projects:

  • Ressourcenprojekt Agro4esterie in den Kantonen Jura, Neuchâtel, Genf und Waadt
  • EU Horizon 2020 AGROMIX - AGROforestry and MIXed farming systems - Participatory research to drive the transition to a resilient and efficient land use in Europe.

Swiss farmers show how this can look in practice (Hotspot 38/18), supported by the latest results of the European project Agroforestry for Europe’ (AGFORWARD)’.
