This Project explores environmental and economic benefits that agroforestry systems can provide to the dryland corners of irrigated Canterbury dairy farms. Dryland corners of farms constitute over 35,000ha in Canterbury and provide a unique opportunity to diversify the dominant farming sector in this region. This project's specific aims are to: • Understand the perceived or realised barriers to integration of agroforestry in an irrigated dairy farm context and enablers of change to agroforestry. • Identify agroforestry systems which are suitable for integration with Canterbury irrigated dairy farms. • Identify research gaps in agroforestry in New Zealand.

Funding

Funded by the New Zealand Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment's Our Land and Water National Science Challenge (Toitū te Whenua, Toiora te Wai) as part of project Rural Professionals Fund 2023–24
