Marginal agricultural land and efficient afforestation
The programme of this second workshop centred around the following five aims : - to record the socio-economic consequences, limitations and trends relating to the problems of afforestation (CEC and national incentives, concessions-policy, tax systems, land tenancy, laws governing lease, land rationalisation, organisation of markets and of cooperative structures), - to present and to analyse case studies of tree productivity in different kinds of afforestation on previously cultivated land (soil type, quality and area, management systems), - to focus on agroforestry practices on medium and good quality land and to draw on previous technical experience, especially that gained in New Zealand, - to assess the possibility of comparing the range of data and of directing choices with the aid of common land use information systems and data banks, and - to identify the needs for research and the problems of providing coordinated extension services to farmers wishing to grow trees.
