Agroforestry is one of the methods that people have been doing for a long time, probably because of the various benefits that this can provide for them. It is through agroforestry that there may be more crops that will become available to farmers, which means that they will have more crops to sell.

This is also based on the relationship of different trees, plants, and crops to each other in order to come up with a mix of plants, trees, and crops that will have a good relationship with each other.

Some trees will make it possible for the water that will go to the crops to become cleaner than usual.

Agroforestry help conserve the soil and improve soil quality: it prevents and control soil erosion by wind. Field shelterbelts consist of tall, long tress that do not compete with nearby crops and do not occupy much land.

Increase crop yield: research has shown that crop yields in fields that have adjacent shelterbelts have increased. This is due to better moisture and snow control technique, which help control climatic effects that lessen damage to crops.

It helps save energy: shelterbelts reduce the amount of heat loss in winter; this means less amount of energy is required to heat confinement buildings.
