Agroforestry is the set of land-use practices involving the combination of trees, agricultural crops and/or animals on the same land management unit in some form of spatial arrangement or temporal sequence (Lundgren and Raintree, 1982)
Direct impact on the environment
Farmland that works with agroforestry have a direct impact on our environment in more ways than we can imagine.
Those farmlands provides a variety of environments, conditions and resources allowing the coexistence of wildlife alongside farming practices.
This type of farming has a strong impact on agro biodiversity.
Agroforestry effects many aspect of farming and life. From providing higher quality food to promoting the cultural aspect of farming through ecotourism and maintaining the cultural heritage of our regions and countries.
Let’s not forget that agroforestry has a direct positive relation on the environment with effects like better pollanisation, Soil erosion and climate regulation.
Agroforestry practices can make farmland production more stable in the long term.
The benefits associated with agroforestry will continue to grow year on year.
Agroforestry and the climate change battle
Embracing agroforestry practices can lower the effects of climate change by reducing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases, by sequestering carbon in woody plant tissue via photosynthesis, and in surrounding soils.
Invest4land and agroforestry: An unmistakeable choice
After years of being part of the agriculture industry, our company has logically made the choice to work using agroforestry models. More than ever it is important to not only produce and sell our crops. What is essential is that our company has an impact on the global change that is happening at the moment. It has become so difficult to keep going with old practises and to not take into consideration all the effects the agriculture industry has on our life and on our earth.
For invest4land it is a deliberate choice to practice ethical business.
We are therefore using certain styles of agroforestry on our lands, such as orchard systems support, livestock grazing, and more. Such practices can deliver dual production as well as help the biodiversity.
On our walnut farmlands, Invest4land is concentrating on livestock grazing, this technique brings natural fertilizers to the soil. With our Bee farming located among our almond orchards we help the pollanisation of trees. We also use free range egg farming on our selected farmlands. Animals, such as chickens, also benefit from tree presence. The presence of trees encourages positive behavioural traits in these species, reducing negative social interactions, such as inter-animal aggression.
The Invest4land Agroforestry approach ambition is to reduce environmental impact of agriculture whilst improving the potential for our managed farmlands productivity.
