Incorporating Tree and Shrub Species into Small Scale Farming Systems in the Dry Region of Indonesia

Extension Strategy and the Challenges for Institutional Development
  • Anthony P. Y. Djogo


Indigenous species in the Sahelian regions provide an important part of the basic needs of the local people such as fruits, vegetables, medicines, fire-wood, building material etc. Despite their socio-economical importance, local people do not traditionally plant indigenous species. They grow naturally and are merely protected within the agroforestry parklands by farmers.
