How to create MAPs Forest

Forests are self-functioning systems of nature which grows thrives and nurtures itself. Agroforestry is preferred over Monoculture for Foods and MAPs since its economically more viable to have an self-sustaining ecosystem which have multiple yields from the same land functioning on its own and generating revenue all by itself.

Farmers or Foresters have to only invest in the initial days to plan it, cultivate the right set of trees and plants and then nurture them till the big trees become self-reliant. Agro-forests are like a natural poly-house setup, where the big trees regulate the sun, rain, winds coming into the farm, and regulate the moisture and temperature inside the farm in a completely natural way, which is adequate for growing any exotic MAPs, fruits, vegetables or Food grains and Pulses. And the best part is all this natural poly-house is revenue generating in its own way. All the farmer needs is to study the nature and ecosystem around and replicate it in the agroforest.

Maintaining Farm Record is a healthy and professional practice which assists foresters in the long run, of the plants, the method of propagation, place of procurement, sowing time, quantities and growing rate, harvesting seasons, watering, manuring etc. This valuable knowledge can be shared with other enthusiasts in time and influence them to Agro-Forestry. Farm Records are essential for International Certification processes.
