Abstract

The shortage of log supply became an alarming problem for
Malaysia starting from 1995. Similar problem is encountered in the
food sector, whereby the import bills has increased from RM4.6
billion to RM10 billion in 1997. It implies that extra effort needs to
be done to increase food as well as log production. Agroforestry is
one of the ways to solve this problem. Taking this issue into account,
the main intention of this paper is to review the current agroforestry
systems and land use option in tropical climate especially in
Malaysia. This paper does not only review the current agroforestry
system but also evaluate the economic feasibility of different types
of agroforestry system available in Malaysia as well as for other
tropical climate countries. This paper is expected to help the farmers
to provide the economic criteria in selecting the right choice of
agroforestry system for their farm.
