Abstract Increased adoption of silvoarable agroforestry (SAF) systems in Europe, by integrating trees and arable crops on the same land, could offer environmental benefits compared with conventional agricultural systems. Soil erosion, nitrogen leaching, carbon sequestration and landscape biodiversity were assessed for a stratified random sample of 19 lanscape test sites in Mediterraean and Atlantic regions in Europe. Computer simulations showed that SAF couls reduce erosion when combined with contouring practices (crops as wheat, sunflower, oilseed, maize)
