Carbon sequestration in coffee agroforestry plantations of Central America



Carbon sequestration in coffee agroforestry plantations of Central America



21st International Conference on Coffee Science, Montpellier, France, 11-15 September, 2006: 1071-1074



The potential of coffee agroforestry (AGF) systems to act as a sink for carbon (C) is of high interest. Coffee farmers consider with interest the conversion of their coffee monoculture into AGF systems as an alternative to face the economical crisis of coffee prices, through diversification (e.g. timber production), production of high quality coffee and payment of incentives for environmental services such as C sequestration.
