Hi-sAFe is a mechanistic, biophysical model designed to explore the interactions within agroforestry systems that mix trees with crops. The model couples the pre-existing STICS crop model with a new tree model that includes several plasticity mechanisms responsive to tree–tree and tree–crop competition for light, water, and nitrogen. The model’s 3D and spatially explicit form is key for accurately representing numerous competition and facilitation processes. Hi-sAFe is a novel tool for exploring agroforestry management strategies and responses to environmental variation. By improving our understanding of the complex interactions within agroforestry systems, Hi-sAFe can ultimately facilitate the adoption of agroforestry as a sustainable land-use practice.
