Agroforestry trees: to domesticate or not to domesticate?

Export citation

The improvement of agroforestry is as much a social and political challenge as a biological one. To encourage tree planting amonst a diverse client group of resource poor farmers requires better understanding of farmer's decision-making processes. The modest resources for domestication efforts will have to be focused on priority species which have been determined following objective methodologies. Common to the domestication of all species is a need to accelerate the process to deliver appropriate imorovement early on. The proactive multiplication of germplasm is required to reduce the lag phase between identification and adoption of improved material.
