Agroforestry Suitability Assessment

With our Agroforestry Suitability Assessment, we evaluate the potential for implementing agroforestry on your land. We do this by analysing for possible agroforestry practices suited for your land and enterprise. We utilize technology such as remote sensing, satellite data and GIS to create the basic data foundation for the screening. We combine this with information from you that we gather through our online portal. This creates a context-specific and personalized screening that presents agroforestry systems suited for your unique land.

In the screening we look at:

  • Property characteristics like size and current practices
  • Climate and weather
  • Ecology
  • Landform and hydrology
  • Land use and vegetation

With this assessment you get:

  • A unique screening of agroforestry system suited for your land.
  • A report with most suited agroforestry systems and benefits of implementing these.
  • Actionable insights and next steps in the planning and implementation phase.
  • Visualization of the agroforestry system
  • Fast turnaround. 1-3 business days.

The output of the assessment is a short report where the possibilities for agroforestry systems are evaluated. It is the perfect way to start your journey towards agroforestry. Once the order has been placed for this service you will receive an email with further instructions on how to fill out the information we need to complete the assessment.

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.

Case examples

Below are examples of projects where we are applying our agroforestry suitability assessment. This can help to get inspiration for how our agroforestry suitability assessment service can help you implement agroforestry systems on your land.

Sheep silvopasture

Original system: Open pastures

New system: Silvopasture system with feed trees ash, poplar and willow.

Benefits of new system

  • Increased resilience to droughts and floods
  • Reduced feed costs
  • Increased yield due to better grazing as a result of shade and diverse feed

Barley and apple tree alley cropping system

Original system: Monocrop barley field

New system: Rows with apple trees and barley in alleys.

Benefits of new system

  • Spring barley and apple trees have complementary workflows. This means that work is distributed better across the entire season.
