The Center for Agroforestry

The Center for Agroforestry at the University of Missouri, established in 1998, is one the world's leading centers contributing to the science underlying agroforestry, the science and practice of intensive land-use management combining trees and/or shrubs with crops and/or livestock.

Agroforestry practices help landowners to diversify products, markets and farm income; improve soil and water quality; sequester carbon, and reduce erosion, non-point source pollution and damage due to flooding; and mitigate climate change.

The five integrated practices of agroforestry (forest farming, alley cropping, silvopasture, riparian buffers and windbreaks) enhance land and aquatic habitats for fish and wildlife and improve biodiversity while sustaining land resources for generations to come.
