Landscape Planner for Agroforestry promotion scenarios

Project Planners or commodity traders often need long-term production and cash flow projections. Such analyses are essential to feasibility studies for scaling of Agroforestry activities. FarmTreeServices developed a Landscape Planning Module that aggregates investments and performance of Agroforested plots into a single investment plan with production, cash-flow and environmental scenarios.

Typical Landscape Planner users are project designers, but also companies who work with out-grower farmers. The Landscape Planner allows planners to capture the performance of each landscape element (orchards, commodity crop fields, agroforestry gardens, natural regeneration, etc.). It further organises them in an investment plan with costs of service delivery and inputs. 

FarmTree®Services provides tailor-made software and training for its use. Please contact us for specifications of the toolbox.

Projecting carbon in Agroforestry systems

Carbon added to Plot Results module

 

Late 2016, we enriched the Plots Results module with carbon flow projections of Agroforestry plots. You can check underground and above-ground carbon volumes over a 50-year period of time. Even if the underlying model is not sufficiently detailed for obtaining carbon credits, the Tool provides an indication that will suffice for most adaptation projects. It shows that the carbon stock in Agroforestry systems is dynamic: trees regularly disappear and get replanted!

FarmTree®Services provides both capacity development services and tailor-made software. Please write to frankvanschoubroeck@govga.org for specifications of the toolbox.

Different Agroforestry trees sequester more or less carbon over shorter and longer cycles
