Abstract:Agroforestry systems provide many opportunities of meeting social, cultural, and economic needs. The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska has an agroforestry demonstration site on which clover, corn, and soybeans are grown between rows of black walnut. In 1996, a participatory rural appraisal was used to ascertain Winnebago community preferences for achieving tribal goals through agroforestry, and an economic analysis was conducted. The Indian corn component was found to have the greatest potential for providing sociocultural benefits to the community, with black walnut contributing to overall goals for reforestation and wildlife habitat.
