About the Agroforestry Group
The Agroforestry Group is involved in projects that aim to make a difference. They offer agricultural and forestry related services to clients ranging from project management and implementation to sales & marketing. They specifically cater towards projects that aim to meet the needs of our rapidly increasing population whilst enhancing the limited natural resources the world has.
For example, in the Agroforestry Group Aquilaria project They are involved with is focused on replenishing the critical endangered and extremely valuable Aquilaria wood species. The United Nations has listed it on its endangered list due to illegal over harvesting for its heartwood, which is used in the manufacturing of fragrances, incense and medicines.
Their latest Agroforestry Group Musang King Durian project aims at shifting Malaysia’s over reliance on the destructive palm oil industry whilst simultaneously meeting rapidly rising demand for the crop across Asia, namely China.

What is Agroforestry?
Agroforestry is the interaction of agriculture and trees, including the agricultural use of trees. This comprises trees on farms and in agricultural landscapes, farming in forests and along forest margins and tree-crop production, including cocoa, coffee, rubber and oil palm. Interactions between trees and other components of agriculture may be important at a range of scales: in fields (where trees and crops are grown together), on farms (where trees may provide fodder for livestock, fuel, food, shelter or income from products including timber) and landscapes (where agricultural and forest land uses combine in determining the provision of ecosystem services).
Agroforestry Group is a collective name for land-use systems and technologies where woody perennials (trees, shrubs, palms, bamboos, etc.) are deliberately used on the same land-management units as agricultural crops and/or animals, in some form of spatial arrangement or temporal sequence. In agroforestry systems there are both ecological and economical interactions between the different components. Agroforestry Group can also be defined as a dynamic, ecologically based, natural resource management system that, through the integration of trees on farms and in the agricultural landscape, diversifies and sustains production for increased social, economic and environmental benefits for land users at all levels. In particular, agroforestry is crucial to smallholder farmers and other rural people because it can enhance their food supply, income and health. Agroforestry Group systems are multifunctional systems that can provide a wide range of economic, sociocultural, and environmental benefits.
Agroforestry in Malaysia
Malaysia is known as the largest exporter and second largest producer of world palm oil market. Despite such contributions, a huge amount of forest land has been supplanted by oil palm cultivation. This activity is considered as a major driver of deforestation, which contributes to three-quarters of tropical deforestation globally. Agroforestry Group Critiques suggest agroforestry systems as option to overcome the issues brought up by the monoculture system of oil palm cultivation. This study is directed to study plant composition and arrangement for agroforestry systems in oil palm smallholdings. Data were gathered using a qualitative approach involving 10 biggest oil palm Malay smallholdings at Kluang, Johor.
The Agroforestry Group study reveals that arrangement involves triangular, double avenue, and boundary planting systems. Further analysis traced that these plant species and arrangement can be categorized into two main categories which are: (i) sustainable plant composition and arrangement, and (ii) unsustainable into sustainable plant composition and arrangement. The Agroforestry Group study concluded that the transformation of the monoculture system with low sustainability towards more sustainable farming practices of agroforestry systems can actually be achieved through five considerations identified as (i) crop component (ii) maturity of oil palm (iii) market values and demand (iv) belowground and aboveground interaction, and (v) diversification of plant composition and arrangement.
