Report 27. The effects of Leucaena hedgerow management on maize and hedgerow biomass yields over two years of cropping
The objectives of the study were to identify optimum hedgerow management practices for alley cropping in order to optimize crop yield and hedgerow biomass production under lowland conditions in Haiti. The following ...
Report 30. The effects of alley cropping and other soil conservation practices on maize (Zea mays) yields over two years of cropping
The effects of different soil conservation practices on crop and hedgerow biomass yields were assessed under lowland conditions in Haiti over a period of two years. The trial was conducted at Pernier (1300 mm annual rainfall) ...
Promising tree species as hedgerows for alley cropping in different environments in Haiti
Alley cropping is a system whereby annual crops are planted between rows of trees, which are pruned during the cropping season and the prunings applied as mulch or green manure. During periods where no crop is grown, the ...
Report 06. Evaluation of tree species adaptation for alley cropping in four environments in Haiti. A. Establishment phase
Thirty-five tree species were planted in hedgerows in four environments in Haiti: high elevation (1150 m); low elevation, humid on calcareous soil; low elevation, humid on basaltic soil; and low elevation, semi-arid, with ...
Report 15. Evaluation of tree species adaptation for alley cropping in four environments in Haiti. B. First year of pruning
Tree species were evaluated for their suitability as hedgerows for alley cropping in Haiti. Major criteria discussed in this report are total and leaf biomass production, leaf/stem ratio, regrowth following pruning, and ...
