Here’s the 108 page agroforestry publication from the USDA… I haven’t had a chance to read it yet but skimming through it looks good. There are a lot of good agroforestry resources out there but I’m glad to see research and promotion for agroforestry coming from such a large government institution as the USDA. Maybe there’s hope afterall… For those of you who download and read/use the PDF, I’d be curious to hear reader feedback in the comment forum.

“A – practical guide in Agroforestry has been developed by a team of agroforestry specialists from the 1890 and 1862 Land Grant Universities and the USDA National Agroforestry Center (NAC), led by the 1890 Agroforestry Consortium. The purpose of the guide is to assist underserved and limited resources farmers and woodland owners to adopt best management technologies in agroforestry. The guide depicts step-by-step methods and principles on developing agroforestry practices for farmers and woodland owners for the purpose of enhancing the economic and environmental benefits of their farms and woodlands.”
