338 Bioenergy, Agroforestry, and Environment

Oral Session
S11 Soils & Environmental Quality

Despite increased attention and demand for the adoption of agroforestry practices throughout the world, rigorous long-term scientific studies confirming environmental benefits of incorporating agroforestry practices in cropping systems are limited. This session is organized to gather information on soil, water, and air quality improvements when agroforestry practices are incorporated in row-crop and grazed management systems and then identify research gaps for implementation of these practices in cropping systems.
