Agroforestry helps to reap considerable benefits on both economic and environmental fronts. It helps in producing greater agricultural output. This system proves to be more sustainable compared to agricultural monocultures or forestry. Looking at the benefits and features of an agroforestry system, it has been adopted in several regions of the world. It improves weather patterns and climatic conditions by changing microclimatic conditions like temperature, wind speed, and amount of water vapor in air that positively impacts the growth of crops and welfare of animals. By regulating quality of air, rain cycles, patterns, wind erosion, and water concentration, agroforestry reduces the impact of global warming and climatic change on agriculture.
Agroforestry assists in ensuring high levels of nutrition and health due to an increase in the quality of yield and its diversity. Agroforestry provides a varied farm economy. It boosts the entire rural economy that results in a more stable community and farm. Due to the production of several types of products by the Agroforestry systems, economic hazards are reduced to a significant level. Careful planning and integration of agroforestry can help protect the natural resources in the environment. For example, growing trees can help improve the quality of water and its quantity by filtering and capturing water resources.
