Orange trees intercropped with legumes - Increasing income from your orange orchard

Why intercropping?

Market-focused farmers manage orange tree (Citrus sinensis) varieties by pollarding and crafting. This procedure can take up to 15 years for the tree to reach maturity and attain maximum fruit yields. In the meantime, farmers can take advantage of the wide and open space created by the pollarding, to produce a variety of vegetables and raise a further income to supplement that earned from the orange trees.
