Unique Acacia Tree Could Nourish Soils And Life In Africa

Scientists have said at the 2nd World Congress of Agroforestry that a type of acacia tree with an unusual growth habit -- unlike virtually all other trees -- holds particular promise for farmers in Africa as a free source of nitrogen for their soils that could last generations.
"There is sufficient research on both sides to warrant dramatically scaling-up the planting of this tree on farms across Africa through extension programs."
- Dennis Garrity, Director General of the World Agroforestry Centre
