In the present, when climate change is more and more visible on crop yield losses, when biodiversity and fertility of the agricultural land dramatically decreases, as well as when number of oncological patients rises thanks to environmental pollution, it is necessary to search for alternatives to the conventional farming system, associated with these problems. Agro-forestry systems (as a part of regenerative agriculture), which were recently re-discovered in Europe, can solve them as well as contribute to reduction of the climate change causes (through carbon sequestration). In this dissertation, we intend to describe background of the plant production process in an original low-input agro-forestry model (physiological responses of respective components to modified soil and micro-climatic relations) and define its benefits/lacks compared to the conventional farming system.
