Agroforestry: preliminary results of intercropping acacia, eucalyptus, and leucaena with maize and beans - 1982 - Printed

Summary (En) IDRC also on microfiche

A trial was established in 1978 to study the interaction of trees with food crops. Eucalyptus melliodora was planted with maize, beans, and sorghum, separately, on clean-weeded and unweeded plots. The results were so encouraging that further trials, intercropping trees with maize and beans, have been established: Eucalyptus camaldulensis, for fuel and poles; Leucaena leucocephala, for fuel and fodder; and Acacia albida, for fuel and fodder. The results of these trials are presented in this paper
