Cropping systems where we mix agricultural crops with trees and bushes can be varied infinitely. In this course, we familiarise ourselves with different types of agroforestry systems and explore the exciting interactions that emerge between their components.

We use examples from different parts of the world, including Sweden. We explore how different types of agroforestry systems are adapted to different conditions, how system design affects biological processes and microclimate, how agroforestry affects the environment, the advantages and disadvantages of different agroforestry systems and the economic, environmental and social sustainability of agroforestry. The course offers lectures by teachers and invited speakers, discussions, study visits and a considerable amount of independent study.
