  6. Trees and forests were always considered as an integral part of Indian culture. Planting of trees was regarded as a noble act during ancient times. Now, due to increasing population and a huge gap between demand and supply. Forests have been ruthlessly exploited to meet the increasing demand for fuel, fodder and timber. Hence, in the light of ever increasing demand, the concept of multiple use of land multipurpose tree species has become immensely important. In this context, agroforestry is an integrated approach of using the interactive benefits from combining trees and shrubs with crops and/or livestock. It combines agricultural and forestry technologies to create more diverse. Productive, profitable, healthy and sustainable land-use systems.

  7. Agroforestry is basically a land management system, but in recent years its importance has been strongly felt for two main reasons. Firstly, there is heavy pressure on agricultural land due to urbanization, and secondly, due to a resource crunch agriculture is becoming unprofitable. Agroforestry is a blend of agriculture and forestry. Agriculture means crops and forestry means trees. Normally it is a domain of agriculture wherein the area under crops in 80% or more and under trees it is 20% or less. Trees occupy very little area in the Agroforestry system but play the dominant role. The success of Agroforestry vis- - vis farmers accepting the technology will only be possible if agricultural production is not affected to a great extent in its association with the tree component.

  8. The sustainability of agroforestry systems in different environments depends on several factors. The important ones are environment of the area, site characters, plant species and cultivars, cropping patterns and the management system practiced by the farmers. In agroforestry systems there are both ecological and economic interactions amongst the different components.

  9. Agroforestry systems can be advantageous over conventional agricultural and forest production methods through increased productivity, economic benefits, social outcomes and the ecological goods and services provided. Biodiversity in agroforestry systems in typically higher than in conventional agricultural systems. Agroforestry incorporates at least several plant species into a give land area and creates a more complex habitat that can support a wider variety of birds, insects and other animals. Agroforestry also has the potential to help reduce climate change, since trees take up and store carbon at a faster rate than crops.

  10. Q. 1. Consider the following statements regarding agroforestry 1. It provides economic benefits to farmers. 2cabe ccesfil ven if gricultural oup is c 3. In this system of cultivation, trees cover 80 % of the area. 4. The variety of life in this ecosystem is superior to that in normal cultivation. Which of the above statements are incorrect, as per the passage? (a) 1 and 4 (b) 2 and 4 (c) 2, 3 and 4 (d) 1, 2 and 3

  11. 0 Q. 2. Why are forests being utilized in a selfish way nowadays, as per the passage? (a) Because of the requirements of the increased population (b) Because of the difference between the demand for wood and its availability (c) Top meet the increasing requirement of fodder (d) All of the above

  12. Q. 3. Consider the following reasons for sustainability of agroforestry 1. It combines trees and shrubs with crops and livestock 2. It depends on the environment of the area and the selectively bred plants being cultivated 3. It does not depend. on crop rotation Which of the above reasons are correct, as per the passage? (a) only 1 (b) 1 and 3 (c) 1 and 2 (d) Ail of these

  13. Q. 4. This question consists of an Assertion (A) and a Reason (R). Indicate your answer by selecting the correct alternative. Assertion (A): An agroforestry system can support a wide variety of animals and birds. Reason (R): It supports climate change, as trees store the excess carbon in the atmosphere. (a) Both A and R are right and R is the correct explanation for A (b) Both A and R are right but R is not (c) A is right but R is wrong (d) A is wrong but R is right the correct explanation for A
