IGLESIAS, J. M et al. Agrosilvopastoral designs in the context of developing a sustainable livestock production. Notes for knowledge. Pastos y Forrajes [online]. 2011, vol.34, n.3, pp.241-257. ISSN 0864-0394.

The objective of this work was to review the utilization of agrosilvopastoral systems in different subtropical regions, with emphasis on Cuban conditions. In it the main concepts of these agroforestry systems are described, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of their application. The principal outputs and designs of different agrosilvopastoral systems studied in Cuba, Brazil and Colombia are analyzed, showing the possibility of their implementation under conditions of high fragility and productive limitations, without altering the ecological stability and with acceptable economic results. An important part of the work is the description of the characteristics of home gardens in Cuba, which are highly diverse regarding the quantity of species and varieties, and very complex and varied in structure and associations. To increase the use of agrosilvopastoral systems in the context in which current livestock production systems are developed is recommended, due to their economic-productive results and their contribution to the balance of agroecosystems.

Palabras clave : Agrosilvopastoral designs; mixed home gardens.
