Smith, Jo (2010) Agroforestry Policy Review. The Organic Research Centre, Research.
A lack of policy support is seen as one of the main barriers to wider adoption of agroforestry, with the integration of trees at a low density into agricultural land challenging the conventional specialisation of forestry and agricultural policy mechanisms. Within the EU, it is necessary to examine how agroforestry fits into the two pillars of agricultural support; Pillar I - direct aids and market support, and Pillar II - rural development, as well as within forestry policy schemes for farm woodlands.
