Abstract

Environmental degradation is a global problem but agroforestry seems a potent weapon for tackling this hydra-headed problem. This paper highlighted types and causes of degradation and various systems of agroforestry practices. The need for extension in agroforestry was discussed. Environmental and socio-economic benefits of agroforestry practices were also listed. [JEXT Vol.1(1) 2000: 36-43]
