Abstract
The study aims to assess the economic indicators of the conversion from a poplar monoculture (short rotation coppice stand) to an agroforestry system. The agroforestry system is an alley-cropping system where soybean and sorghum are cultivated between poplar rows. The comparison between the monoculture and the mixed system allows to assess the best cropping system combination in terms of economic income, resilience, and agroecosystem services.
