Intercropping to Increase Production and Beat the Weeds with Dave Sansone

Dave Sansone is the Agriculture Production Specialist for The Kohala Center and owner of Agroforestry Design which offers consultation services to help people develop productive and sustainable agroforestry systems. He is recognized as an expert in underutilized food plants.
