Naturefund and Greeneducare installed for the first time dynamic agroforestry in Romania. In order to combat the effects of climate change and help to support sustainable agriculture.

First dynamic agroforestry plot in East Europe

Naturefund and the non-profit-organisation Greeneducare installed an agroforestry plot in Romania in order to test the method dynamic agroforestry. The plot has been installed on land of the Banat's University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine in Timișoara, Romania. The size of the parcel is 1000 m² and diverse trees and other species has been planted.

Main criterias

Essential criterias of dynamic agroforestry are:

  1. A maximum of 50% crops,
  2. At least 25% plants, which improve the soil (eg legumes, deep-rooted plants or plants, with a large biomass production and toerable of cutting) and
  3. At least 25% local and native species.

The plant combination has been discussed together in regular skype meetings or by emails. The focus lies on research and observation with the special interest to develop a sensible approach of this method to agriculture in continental climate like in Romania.

By now the European climate initiative Climate-Kic supports this project.
