Our Track Record
Advancing agroforestry for smallholder coffee farmers in Ethiopia
In the Ethiopian coffee system, the FarmTree Tool is proving useful in supporting the adoption and scaling of agroforestry practices, with a focus on enhancing farmers' income and biodiversity. With collaboration from Kyeema Foundation and Moyee, a Dutch coffee company, the project is working on extending to benefit multiple coffee areas.
Carbon sequestration for Rabobank ACORN
Asia, Africa and Latin America
The Rabobank Acorn project requires single-species carbon sequestration projections for smallholder agroforestry business case development. FarmTree developed a protocol to project the biomass of individual species - even if they are poorly documented - and calibrate those with field-verified data by Acorn partners.
Watershed reforestation in Morogoro, Tanzania
For the conservation and restoration of the Mindu dam catchment in Morogoro, Tanzania, agroforestry has been identified as an important nature-based solution. The NWB Fonds Watershed Reforestation Tool, powered by the FarmTree tool, is being used for decision support to identify agroforestry options and to catalyse climate action.
Feasibility study on Cocoa Agroforestry in Peru
ECOM, an international cocoa trading company that among other countries sources from Peru, is embarking on a mission to facilitate their produces in transitioning to cocoa agroforestry. We tailored the multi-cropping planning tool that includes local species and cocoa production specifics for the trading companies field staff to use in decision making process. Moreover, the cost benefit analysis report comparing cocoa Business As Usual and agroforestry scenarios has been produced to document the findings and facilitate cocoa agroforestry communication with farmers, government and financial institutions.
Banana agroforestry in Latin America
Peru, Ecuador & Costa Rica
We worked with AgroFair to model the performance of banana agroforestry compared to banana monoculture systems, to understand the benefits of cash crop diversification in terms of yields, costs-benefits, carbon sequestration and resistance to diseases. This has supported AgroFair in their ambitions to expand fair trade bananas to agroforestry.
"The FarmTree Tool and team helped us understand the value of different agroforestry systems and the potential for increased revenue over a 30-year period"
"We found the FarmTree Tool essential for predicting outcomes of highly complexes farm scenarios, among many, also agroforestry systems."
"We really valued the collaboration with FarmTree. We found the team and Tool very easy to work with and amenable to changes."
"The FarmTree Tool is a reliable instrument which can assist the farmer during critical management decisions."
