Pollinator: Seeing the Wood for the Trees – Innovation for Agroforestry and Soil Carbon Capture

Thursday 8th October @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Pollinator: Seeing the Wood for the Trees – Innovation for Agroforestry and Soil Carbon Capture

 Registration is closed for this event

Silvo-arable and silvo-pasture systems, as well as farming forests could help UK agriculture reach net zero carbon emissions by 2040. But tree planting requires long-term planning and a clear understanding of the natural capital potential as well as anticipated economic benefits, as well as tech for tree management, including mapping and visualisation above and below ground, carbon capture and incentives.

** Delegate offer **

All attendees to this event will be able to take advantage of a 20% discount on their publication ‘Agroforestry for Sustainable Agriculture‘ kindly offered by Agri-TechE members, Burleigh Dodds Science Publishing.

This volume reviews the latest research on the role and implementation of main types of agroforestry, understanding and assessing the ecosystem services that agroforestry can deliver and techniques for optimising agroforestry practice. The book’s main focus is on temperate agroforestry, but also reviews particular issues facing agroforestry in the tropics.

The collection will be a standard reference for forestry and agricultural scientists in universities, government and other research centres in agroforestry

One lucky attendee will be picked at random from those who submit a question during the webinar to receive a free copy!
