Grevillea agroforestry

Grevillea robusta was originally introduced as a shade tree in the coffee and tea estates of East Africa. Now small-scale farmers use the tree in many ways as it does not interfere with crop growth. Uses for this tree include timber, fuelwood, leaf mulch, and shade. It also serves as a windbreak.Watch this video to learn more about Grevillea agroforestry:
