Abstract:
India with 2nd largest human population and only 2.29% of land area of world having pressure for both human and livestock food/feed resources. Due to climate change and decrease in feed and fodder cultivation area need of alternative sources for feed resources, silvipastoral system of feed resource availability is alternative to get tree leaves for livestock feeding and firewood also. Under common property resources in villages, silvipastoral system of fodder production is alternative for feed resources for small ruminants specially sheep, goat and other livestock. It has been possible to increase land productivity from 0.5-1.5 tonne/hactare/year to more than 15 tonne/hactare/year by developing suitable silvipasture models. The additional forage availability through such systems is likely to reduce grazing pressure and thus have important environmental implications.
