Cropping cereals among timber trees - Coping with climate warming in Mediterranean countries

Facing climate change

Global food production should at least double by the end of this century to meet the needs of the increasing human population. However, crop yield potential has stagnated, and some reduction in the crop yields is expected as consequence of climate change.

Silvo-agriculture can be regarded as an adaptive cultivation system that can help to mitigate the negative effects of climate warming and help meet the challenges arising from the increased frequency of extreme weather events.
