Welcome to the Savanna Institute
Join us at the Kickapoo Valley Reserve to learn about agroforestry practices, developing pollinator habitat, and planting cover crops.
Understanding Agroforestry Practices
There are several ways to implement agroforestry, and they each have different benefits and challenges. Begin to explore these practices and learn about how they might be used to diversify farm income, meet conservation goals, improve water retention, and even boost crop yield.
Learn more about five key agroforestry practices: Riparian Buffers, Forest Farming, Alley Cropping, Silvopasture and Windbreaks in these handy infographics.
Our Pioneer Agroforestry Farm Tour series will introduce you to the many options other farmers have already implemented on their land. It’s an excellent way to hear about the practices from people who have a lot of experience already.
