Editorial note on mixed farming and its types

Despite a trend toward specialised farming in agribusiness, research, and education, mixed farming is popular around the world. Obviously, mixing has both benefits and drawbacks. Farmers in mixed systems, for example, must divide their attention and resources across many tasks, resulting in lower economies of scale. The option of lowering risk, dispersing labour, and repurposing resources are all advantages. The importance of these benefits and drawbacks varies depending on the farmers' sociocultural choices as well as the biophysical variables (rainfall, radiation, soil type, and disease pressure). This chapter begins by describing various types of mixing. Second, it illustrates how combining different pieces necessitates a unique method in order for the whole blend to be successful. What matters is the entire yield, not the yield of the parts. Trees in and around a crop field diminish grain yields, but the combination of trees (for feed and lumber) and crops is valuable because each of the components generates useful farm goods (people and animals included).
