Alley farming involves the cultivation of food crops among hedgerows of multipurpose trees. Use of woody legumes provides N-rich mulch and green manure to maintain soil fertility and enhance crop production, and protein-rich fodder for livestock

Alley farming involves the cultivation of food crops among hedgerows of multipurpose trees. Use of woody legumes provides N-rich mulch and green manure to maintain soil fertility and enhance crop production, and protein-rich fodder for livestock. The success of alley farming depends on a number of technical factors-choice of suitable woody species, successful establishment of the hedgerows, and appropriate management of the hedgerows. The alley farming technique being a scale-neutral system is flexible enough for use both by smallholder farmers and in mechanized farming.

Chapter 2 Potential for sustainable agroforestry and alley farming in tropical Africa. This ultimately led to the development of the alley cropping system (Kang et al. 1981)

Chapter 2 Potential for sustainable agroforestry and alley farming in tropical Africa. Kang, Soil Scientist, International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, Ibadan, Nigeria. Trees have commonly formed an important part of Africa's traditional farming systems. 1981). In alley cropping, food crops and woody species are intercropped, food crops are grown in the alleys formed by hedgerows of planted trees and shrubs, preferably legumes. The hedgerows are cut back at planting and periodically pruned during cropping to prevent shading and to reduce competition with the food crops.

Alley farming is a modification of the alley cropping system where food crops are planted in between, regularly pruned, widely spaced trees. Unlike the RVI index the modified equation, presented here, accommodates alley farming where perennials and the amount of tree prunings used as green manure are important parameters. Although designed specifically for alley farming the modified index can also accommodate alley cropping systems.
