This presentation explains how mixed crop and livestock production systems can help improve crop productivity and the sustainability of farming systems in the Andean region of Ecuador. The main problem in the Chimbo watershed is the negative effect of the mismanagement of natural resources in the upper watershed on the lower areas in the watershed. Flooding frequently occurs, resulting in crop destruction and soil nutrient runoff. This presentation presents the vulnerable areas of the watershed and possible watershed management solutions in the Andean region of Ecuador.
