Agroforestry is one of the methods that people do all over the world, but there are certain areas wherein this is considered to be more common. This is common in Latin America and also in some parts of Asia.

This is more common in areas wherein there is a lot of lands available in order to grow different types of plants, trees, and shrubs. There are also instances when this is used in areas wherein there is only a limited amount of land.

What people would like to do is to make use of the small amount of land and make sure that all of the crops, trees, and shrubs will be planted accordingly to allow crops to grow well.
