A National Network of Agroforestry Farms
Sharing knowledge and evidence of the value of agroforestry through a network of farms and initiatives across the UK working to balance the objectives of simultaneously and sustainably growing food, transition to the new ELM Scheme and contribute to ‘public goods.’
Agroforestry ELM Test - Designing an Environmental Land Management system for UK agroforestry
AGROforestry and MIXed farming systems — Participatory research to drive the transition to a resilient and efficient land use in Europe (AGROMIX)
WOOFS: WOOdchip For Fertile Soils
WOOFS is a new EU-funded EIP Operational Group of researchers, farmers and foresters from the UK. The group is led byORC and formed to investigate the role of woodchip in soil health.
Agroforestry Innovation Networks
AFINET will promote innovation in agroforestry through the development of a network, based on successful sharing of practical experiences and existing research knowledge, applied to different contexts, climates and agricultural sectors.
Innovative and sustainable intensification of integrated food and non-food systems to develop climate-resilient agro-ecosystems in Europe
The main objective of SustainFARM is to enhance agronomic, environmental and economic performance of integrated food and non-food production systems (IFNS) by optimizing productivity and valorizing woody components, residual wastes and co-products.
Agroforestry in dairy systems, a part of Sustainable Organic and Low Input Dairying
This project, part of SOLID, is investigating the potential of integrating bioenergy production from short rotation coppice with dairy systems for alternative feed resources, improved animal welfare, enhanced productivity and environmental benefits.
AGroFORestry that Will Advance Rural Development (AGFORWARD)
Working with 26 partners from across 23 European countries, this project aims to promote agroforestry practices in Europe that will advance sustainable rural development, i.e. improved competitiveness and social and environmental enhancement.
Towards Eco-energetic Communities
Realising the economic potential of using biomass from landscape elements for local energy or heat production with respect for the current ecological, cultural and social functions that these landscape elements fulfil.
