Trees on farm reduce hunger and improve nutrition: Agroforestry is helping to improve food security in many poor rural communities by increasing crop yields and introducing indigenous trees with nutritious fruits

Export citation

Hunger in rural areas is often a result of poor soils and meagre harvests. Agroforestry makes soil more fertile resulting in better harvests of staple foods. This means that families are less likely to go hungry. Planting trees that improve soil fertility naturally is a low-cost way for farmers with poor soils to reap better harvests. In Malawi Zambia Kenya Tanzania Niger Burkina Faso and other countries in sub-Saharan Africa fertilizer trees dramatically increase maize yields.
