|Título:||Agroforestry research and development in Hungary|
|Resumo:||Hungary is a traditionally agricultural country, therefore the „old” agroforestry technologies (windbreaks, shelter-belts, hedgerows, wooded pastures) had been applied in large scale in the past centuries. From the early nineties the positive trend of increasing area of protective forest belts first stopped, then reversed. The former area of forest belts (35 000 hectares) has decreased by 50% up to this time. The high ratio of “risky” territories demonstrates the strong need for the development of rural areas, by eg. the implementation of innovative agricultural technology able to increase social-economic sustainability. Followed from the forest belt research project started in the ’60s and ran over the course of several decades, a new line of experiments has started some years ago in the UWH Faculty of Forestry with the aim to develop a modell for the design and construction of forest belts by the combination of digital modelling and field sampling with analytical methods. The examination and development of windbreaks and shelter belt system will be continued within the frame of a national project focused on climate – vegetation relationship. In 2012 the UWH Cooperational Research Centre, together with local cooperatives and farmers have set the objective of integrating modern agroforestry technologies in their on-farm agricultural activity and establishing new experimental sites available for future research and demonstration purposes. This cooperation will also contribute to the „AGFORWARD” international research project on agroforestry. In the Corvinus University of Budapest, Department of Ecological Farming and Sustainable Production Systems an R&D project on forest gardens started in 2010. From this year agroforestry appears among the “determinative research and development subjects” of the Ministry of Rural Development. This development and the increasing number of research projects show agroforestry rising again in Hungary.|
