But we could also consider an intermediate design between these two extremes. The substitutive design is usually adopted, but would not make a full assessment of tree-crop interactions possible. For example, the additive control consisting of a tree stand at an agroforestry density but with no intercrop would be useful to separate the impact of the low tree density from the impact of the crop competition on tree growth. Substitutive designs offer the possibility of calculating the Land Equivalent Ratio (LER, Mead and Willey, 1980), which is a common and well adopted measure of intercropping efficiency.
