Overview of the statements

No.Statement
Water use in agroforestry systems is higher than that of monocropping systems 
Monocropping systems demand more water than agroforestry systems 
Increasing tree numbers improves water availability at regional scale 
Tree roots take water in during the rainy season, and release it during the dry season 
Trees consume water and compete with other water users – e.g. crops 
Trees reduce surface water runoff from farmland 
Are you interested in understanding how different farming practices affect water use on farmland? 
Are you interested in understanding how agroforestry and monoculture systems affect farmland water use differently? 
I believe that agroforestry and monocropping systems differ in their water use 
10 In my opinion, all farming systems (agroforestry and monocropping) have similar water demands 
11 In my opinion, agroforestry systems are a reliable tool for soil and water conservation on farmland 
12 I believe agroforestry systems reduce flood risk 
13 In this area, there are mostly monocropping rather than agroforestry systems 
14 We try to encourage farmers to include trees on farmland 
15 I prefer monocropping to agroforestry systems as trees use too much water 
16 When applying agroforestry, I worry about the competition between trees and crops for soil water 
17 I apply/We encourage farmers to apply agroforestry for soil and water conservation on farmland
