Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

0.0 stars

As the world population increases and urbanization continues, food security has become pivotal in the sustainability agenda. Countries around the globe are looking for long-term solutions to provide sufficient food sources without over-exploiting the ecosystems. Agroforestry is advocated as one possible land management approaches that could form part of the solution in tackling the issues.
While some places use agroforestry to increase the yield of open farmland, there are places that use it as a conservation approach and replace the traditional slash-and-burn agricultural practices to conserve the ecological value of forests. This e-study introduces the concepts of agroforestry in several case studies. Readers could gain a holistic understanding of the opportunities and challenges of implementing agroforestry around the world.

Case Study: Is it Time for an NPIP like Program for the US Pork Industry?

The National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) is an industry, state, and federal partnership that has long played a central role in bettering the health of US poultry and improving the competitiveness of the US poultry and egg industries.[1] The objective of this communication is to report the findings of a case study of the NPIP undertaken in 2018. The primary aims of the study included seeking a more in-depth understanding of the NPIP, clarifying how NPIP differs from and complements the Secure Food Supply Plans for the US poultry and egg industries, and assessing the needs and potential applications for establishing a similar program for the US pork industry (e.g., “US Swine Health Improvement Plan”).

Cover Crop Educational Modules
Rating
0.0 stars

Active learning modules to help students understand the role of cover crop species selection and design of mixed species cover crop plantings on multiple ecosystem services. Our current goal is to integrate lessons-learned from 8 years of research and extension activities into undergraduate education modules that can be widely distributed. Students completing these modules would be able to describe why cover crops are used, how different species of cover crop affect an array of ecosystem functions, how mixtures can be used to increase the multifunctionality of cover cropping systems, and factors that control mixture growth across sites. If the modules are delivered in the following order then these concepts build sequentially.
