This 2018 report outlines three experiments conducted by AGFORWARD. These three experiments make up a study that seeks to improve the management of agroforestry systems with chestnut trees. The first experiment involved evaluating the damage done by Celtic pigs on unprotected and protected chestnut trees. The results of this experiment showed that the pigs caused more damage to the unprotected bark of the trees, but the metal barrier did not protect the tree roots. The second experiment involved inoculating an adult chestnut stand with Boletus edulis mushroom. This experiment was not successful, likely due to drought and climatic conditions. Finally, in experiment three, grafted and self-rooted varieties of chestnut trees were produced and tested. This experiment was successful and can be used to evaluate issues related to chestnut infection by Phytophthora spp.
