Landwirte entdecken den Agroforst

Climate change is here - how can you mitigate the consequences? More and more farmers see agroforestry as a solution: fields with rows of trees providing shade for crops and animals, protecting the soil from aridification and erosion, creating biodiversity and sequestering carbon. This is documented by the research of agricultural scientist Christian Dupraz in Montpellier. A group of Swabian farmers visit him to plan the conversion of their fields into agroforestry systems.
