Initial report on studied innovations of agroforestry for livestock farmers
This milestone within work-package 5 is an initial report on agroforestry innovations for livestock farmers. The agroforestry innovations related to poultry production focus on the integration of chickens with apple orchards, biomass willows and miscanthus, and the use of improved understorey swards. The innovations related to the integration of trees with pigs focus on tree protection and fodder tree evaluation. Those focused on trees with cattle address tree protection, the spatial organisation of trees, and the use of willow and alder as fodder trees.
