They bring subsoil nutrients to the surface, provide shade, and slow erosion. Many trees provide fodder, living fenceposts, fruit and other edible parts, shade, insecticides, and wood; they all have some role in soil stabilization and offer quality-of-life benefits like beauty and a shelter for informal gatherings.

selection from multipurpose tree species (MPTs), with a view to providing better-performing germplasm for farming communities in developing countries.

However, this improvement work is largely being carried out without direct contact with farming communities, the ultimate end users of. The introduction to this paper discusses tree growing by hill and terai (plain) farmers, giving details of the common and popular species grown in each area and their uses, with some data on lopping season and propagation methods.

Land use categories on the farms are described and land availability for tree planting (including intercropping and silvopastoral systems) by: 1. Reports on the situation in communities in three different countries where MPTs are being actively promoted: Honduras, where many MPT species are within their native range; Malawi, where a number of exotic MPTs have been recently introduced; and Sri Lanka, where some exotic MPTs such as Gliricidia sepium have been in use for a long time.

Desirable information for each species includes its benefits, adaptability to local conditions (climate, soil, and stresses), the size and form of the canopy and root system, and suitability for various agroforestry practices.

The five selected indigenous MPFT species had chemical composition ranges of 11–21% CP, % ash, % NDF, % ADF and % lignin, indicating their wide variability among species (P. The Multipurpose Tree Species Research Network in Asia produced the manual with support from a number of national and international agencies in the region.

This Network consisted of a group of scientists and institutions in Asia who had the shared goal of improving the production of trees that meet the needs of small-farm households.

Quality has a major impact on the value of your trees and is determined by log diameter and length, presence of surface and internal defects, growing site (soil types), and species. FACT Net was an international network of community groups, development workers, tree breeders, researchers, students, and farmers, with 2, partners in countries devoted to the use of multipurpose trees to improve the soil, protect the environment, and enhance the well-being of farm families and other land users.

Planting crops alongside the trees is also attractive because the leaves fall at the same time as when farmers plant seeds, which is at the beginning of the rainy season, and nitrogen and other nutrients are released when the growing crops need them most (Hines & Eckman).

The crops and trees also do not. A number of multipurpose tree species are conserved as scattered trees in settled farms on terraced slopes by the traditional farmers in Central Himalaya.

A solid foundation of locally appropriate, time-tested tree species is essential to sustainable land use in the Pacific Islands. Promoting a diverse array of proven native and traditional species will support the conservation of the unique culture and ecology of the region, instead of threatening these with new and risky introductions.

In Samoa, there is a conspicuous reduction in cacao-leaf damage caused by the root beetle, Andoretus versutus, when it is intercropped with trees (Newton and Thomas, ). The role that multipurpose tree species such as neem (Azadirachta indicd), known to be an effective pest-control agent, can play in agroforestry should be determined.

Chickens are commonly raised farm animals because they are multipurpose animals. They are a great source of eggs, meat, and fertilizer. Chickens require about 4 square feet of space per hen in the coop. Chickens require a covered area to stay dry, fresh water, and a place to nest and lay their eggs.

Chickens will eat almost anything. A fence represents a major investment on the small farm. Although it carries a cost, it also provides something of benefit, namely protection. It is often a challenge to small farmers to increase farm production, such as crop yield, and the use of fences can facilitate such improvements.

Whereas a fence may facilitate yield increase on the farm, a living fence can improve the efficiency of the.
