Agroforestry as a method for minimization of environmental impact in agricultural ecosystems
Rodzkin A.I., Pronko S.K.
Agroforestry is a method that enables to get as economical so and environmental effect. Minimization of environmental impact at the result of willow biomass production may be realized on the base of erosion and water pollution control and reclamation of contaminated areas. Our experiments with willow cultivated in different environmental conditions show, that it is possible to get adequate yield of willow wood on post-mining peat lands, and plants do not accumulate extra quantity of radionuclide 137Cs and some heavy metals. Utilization of willow wood as a biofuel enables to get additionally 3500 – 3700 euro per hectare for all period of plantation existing. It will be possible at the result of saving greenhouse gases in accordance with Kyoto Protocol.
