Executive Summary: Final field evaluation of vegetable species and varieties under agroforestry system continued at AVRDC Organic Farm. Five vegetables (Chinese cabbage, cucumber, eggplant, sweet pepper and tomato) were grown during the fall-winter season (October to December 2008) and winter-spring (January to March 2009) season. Vegetables were grown between tree hedgerows (alleys) and in control plots (no trees). Organic fertilizers (compost) were superimposed as sub-treatments. Varieties within vegetable species were compared in terms of growth and yield performance. Results from fall-winter cropping season have been summarized and presented in this report. The winter-spring trial is in progress and will be completed in April 2009.
