Agroforestry system assessment and design

Our Agroforestry Suitability Assessment service can help you find agroforestry systems well suited on your specific farm. The service has an initial step where we gather information about your land and then we assess which agroforestry systems and species that are suitable.

1. Information gathering and assessment

The information used in the assessment is a combination of open data, data from your farm and information gathered through conversations with you about your farm.

Data used in assessment

  • Current agricultural system
  • Information on land and climate
  • Farm economy

2. Suited systems and species

The agroforestry assessment utilizes a comprehensive database of plants with ecological prerequisites and suited utilization to recommend agroforestry systems and species.

Results of assessment

  • Recommended agroforestry systems
  • Recommended native species
  • Technical agroforestry system report
  • Visualization of agroforestry system

Examples of agroforestry system visualizations

Above are visualizations of agroforestry systems of varying complexity. We help you find the perfect system for your land. We furthermore assist you getting in touch with local agroforestry practitioners that you can learn and get inspiration from.
