Agroforestry : Potentials and Opportunities by P S Pathak And R Niwaj
Book Summary:

Agroforestry has been a way of life in India ever since the evolution of human beings through the forests. Uses of trees for different purposes for their daily living including wood, shelter and medicine have been the common feature. It is only with the evolution and emphasis of modern agriculture that the trees started getting low priority to emphasize upon food production. The fatigue of green revolution and resource degradation leading to non-sustainable production systems has demanded our attention for sustainable practices to assure the continued production.
