The component to our success with these sub/tropical species is the oak canopy that we use as a living greenhouse.  The old oaks allow us to push the subtropical edge, growing sub/tropical species & collecting as much diversity as we can find.  Our primary focus is building soil, encouraging maximum biodiversity above the ground & below.  The only irrigation used on the farm is for our nursery.   Heavy mulching, constant cover crops, dynamic accumulators, nitrogen fixers & other beneficial species = a booming perennial agriculture system!

that canopy stuff is real.. i have my plants under a pine canopy right now at the maybe-property. and they are doing incredible..

"and if you ask farmers, old farmers, they are going to say that the best production fields they had, was after a newly cut forest. [...] there's no production field like a newly cut forest"

"the forest is the most technological system to turn sunlight into food"

these agrofroestry vids are great.

"using forest principles" to grow more crops in high density, and interplanting stuff that produce your fertilizer/soil nutrition right on the spot etc (less external inputs, using the agroforest as the input). makes so much sense imho. damn.
