Agroforestry production systems in Costa Rica



Agroforestry production systems in Costa Rica



AFZ, Allgemeine Forst Zeitschrift 49(26): 1440-1444



Examples are given of the level of sustainable production and soil protection that can be achieved with various agroforestry systems, from research work by CATIE (Turrialba, Costa Rica). Data are given especially for cocoa growing in combination with Erythrina poeppigiana and Cordia alliodora as shade trees, viz. phytomass production, nutrient enrichment, increment of C. alliodora, cocoa production, litter production and breakdown, and humus and nutrient reserves in the mineral soil.
