- ... In silvopastoral systems, the use of land for multiple purposes diversifies economic income and improves the stability of the system. If shading levels are medium or high, cattle production is often limited by the absence of one or more forage components of the herbaceous layer (such as perennial grasses). In the present study, we hypothesized that perennial C₃ cover is a major determinant of catt ...

- ... Intercropping alleys in agroforestry provides an income source until the tree crop produces harvestable yields. However, cultivation of annual crops decreases soil organic matter and increases soil erosion potential, especially on sloping landscapes. Perennial crops maintain a continuous soil cover, increase water infiltration, reduce soil erosion, and improve overall soil quality. The objective o ...
