Silvopasture Often Provides Sustainable Intensification

December 13, 2021

Silvopasture—a combination of trees and pasture—often provides for overall greater productivity than either alone.   While there is still much to learn about yields in silvopasture, it appears to hold promise for sustainably intensifying yields on many farms.  Listen to an expert, Dr. Gabriel Pent from Virginia Tech, describe his research in this area.  Click here or google “Over-yielding in temperate silvopastures: a meta-analysis” for a free copy of the peer-reviewed paper on this subject.
