Dr. Anastasia Pantera

Agroforestry benefits, innovations, and useful procedures in grazed woodlands

Technology Dissemination Workshop



Focusing on practical issues, this workshop will discuss the way a traditional system of land use combines certain grazing animals with trees, how this can be advantageous, and what time-tested and innovative techniques can be helpful (such as tree planting, protection of saplings, pollarding and pruning, and sowing grass and legumes).


Brief introduction to the LIVINGAGRO project
The workshop will focus on these questions:

  1. Silvopastoral use since…?
  2. What combines with what?
  3. How to turn disadvantages to advantages?
  4. What to take into account for future challenges?

Q&A, Open discussion between speaker and participants.
