Lifting farmgate profitability through high value modular agroforestry

This project will address the development and adoption of knowledge to support targeted integration of trees into agricultural landscapes where they will improve farm-level profitability. This will be achieved through development of the novel concept of high value modular agroforestry. When adopted by farmers, this system will bring multiple benefits for improving management of soil and water resources and help farmer and farm enterprises to be more resilient to seasonal and long-term climatic extremes. Through targeting the right trees to the right place and adapting high value agroforestry systems to different enterprises, this project aims to increase adoption of high value agroforestry systems and improve farm-level productivity by at least 10% across much of the agricultural landscapes of southern Australia.
