DescriptionSouthern agroforestty has emerged as a significant research topic. Research results indicate that agroforestty can address such sustainability problems as erosion and water pollution, while improving economic performance in selected situatiOII& Silvopastoral systems are the most commonly adopted agroforestty application in the region; le!6-common alley-cropping systems would seemingly help many landowners achieve specific economic objectives. Based on a survey of land-use professionals, the most important research topics related to southern agroforestty are: methods for improving economic returns, mechanisms for enltancing the productivity of alternative systems, and predicting and reducing dantage to trees and soils by livestock and famting equipment
