Farming partnerships in agroforestry
June 17 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Alley cropping offers exciting possibilities for multiple farmers operating in partnership on the same land. This webinar will explore long-term partnerships between tree crop farmers and alley crop farmers, with special focus on rent dynamics and the long-term planning required when integrating trees into agricultural settings. Alley cropping systems explored will include chestnuts, small fruits, and timber.
Patrick Michaels, Business Analyst at the Savanna Institute, works to develop enterprise budgets for agroforestry systems and business models that will catalyze the widespread adoption of agroforestry in the Midwest.
