Alley Cropping Mini-Course: Conservation and Economic Benefits

Alley cropping is the cultivation of crops in between widely spaced rows of trees or shrubs. Their deep perennial roots capture nutrients that shallow annual crop roots cannot, increasing the productive potential of the agricultural system. This mini-course introduces you to NRCS-supported alley cropping practices.
