Reforestation and Biodiversity for Watershed Conservation: Agroforestry DSS and Farms on St Croix USVI

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The main focus of the tree crop project was establishment of multi-strata agroforestry with indigenous trees, fruits and crops for home consumption and local markets. Through initial farmer participation, beginning in 2003, with completion of a survey and descriptive transects walked with research teams, the research group obtained information upon which to base future activities. Farmer preference lists compiled from survey responses served as the basis for tree seedling production in the UVI nursery. The Global Position data was compiled with various geographic information layers and used to build a Decision Support System (DSS) for production and management for St. Croix’s agricultural land. Production data has shared with the UVI Agricultural Experiment Station (AES) and helped provided input for development of the Model Farm Store and on-going collaborative research. Multi-agency collaboration is now focused on gap analysis for protection of biodiversity in the US Virgin Islands.
