[permaculture] Agroforestry, Tree Crops, N-Fixing Trees... Hawaii + Pacific agriculture
An additional source for Hawaii agroforestry / tree
crops came to mind.
Nitrogen Fixing Trees Association was located
in Hawaii for many years, and published extensively
on N-fixing tree crops, agroforestry, intercropping,
and related topics.
NFTA is no longer functioning, yet the materials
are maintained online with Winrock International.
Forest, Farm, and Community Tree Network / Fact Net
Agroforestry for the Pacific Technologies: Fact Sheets
_____ Fact sheets on agroforestry, N-fixing trees
_____ Leaflets on tree species and tree crops
_____ Leucaena reports, NFTA reports, Fact Net reports
Proceedings and Field Manuals
_____ Table of Contents to proceeding papers; print
volumes availabe for purchase.
A darn good collection for The Permaculturist's Bookshelf.
