Assessment of the Adoption of Agroforestry Technologies by Limited-Resource Farmers in North Carolina
Faulkner, Paula E.; Owooh, Bismark; Idassi, Joshua
Journal of Extension, v52 n5 Article 5RIB7 Oct 2014
Agroforestry is a natural resource management system that integrates trees, forages, and livestock. The study reported here was conducted to determine farmers' knowledge about and willingness to adopt agroforestry technologies in North Carolina. The study reported participants were primarily older, male farmers, suggesting the need to attract more females and younger individuals to adopt agroforestry technologies. The increasing number of diversified farm operators presents a new audience for Extension educators to offer programs to improve limited-resource farmers' livelihood. The study recommends Extension training programs and information centers for farmers who need skills and knowledge to manage agroforestry technologies.
