New agroforestry practices for suclder farms in the Pyrenees foothills of Ariege

Abstract : We identified four types of farmers based on their views of woodland functions and constraints. One farmer tested a white mulberry fodder bank on a 0.25-hectare pilot plot. Fodder of good nutritional quality was obtained; it was also acceptable to livestock and available by the summer. Three farmers tested silvopastoral thinning regimes on different types of stands coppices, coppices with standards, and natural woodland made up of downy oak, black locust, and common ash. Four years of monitoring data revealed the importance of controlling grazing following thinning, both to prevent the overly rapid development of brush and to promote herbaceous understaty growth.
