Agroforestry Extension in Paraguay: The Participants' Perspective
Abstract:Agroforestry is among the practices that can address the problems caused by unsustainable agriculture in Latin America. In eastern Paraguay, some small-scale subsistence farmers have already been motivated to adopt agroforestry; they expect their trees to produce fuelwood and forage while improving the soil in their crop fields and home gardens. For many others, however, skepticism and lack of resources remain barriers to adopting alternative land-use strategies--and pose a challenge to local, national, and international organizations.
