An assessment of farmer attitudes to agroforestry on sheep and cereal farms in Northern Ireland

Agroforestry Forum 8(3): 5-8

An assessment of farmer attitudes to agroforestry on sheep and cereal farms in Northern Ireland

A questionnaire survey of Northern Ireland farmers showed that farmers are basically unaware of the concept of agroforestry, but once told about and particularly shown agroforestry, the level of enthusiasm and interest is high. It appeared that the farmers who would like to implement agroforestry would do so more for environmental, landscape and animal welfare reasons than for economic benefits. Farmers and advisers expressed a need for precise economic and technical information.
