Agroforestry
in olive groves

Agroforestry in olive groves is the practice of growing crops among olive trees or using olive groves as pastures, making the groves into multifunctional olive systems that can increase farmers’ profit while helping the planet.

Agroforestry can help increase the sustainability of olive orchards by making the trees less vulnerable to pests, diseases, forest fires, and climatic stresses, partly by increasing biodiversity and soil nutrients, decreasing erosion and water pollution, and helping to conserve water. In addition to saving money on pesticides and fertilizer, farmers can benefit financially both by producing higher quality olives and by harvesting a second crop.
