Abstract: Successful conversions of wastelands into productive arable land, requires physical barriers for protection from grazing and encroachment. Such barrier possesses desired functionality and be sustainable for local conditions (soil, climatic, and social). In the long run, agriculture has to be environmentally sustainable in terms of inputs (energy, water, carbon footprint) and outputs(carbon sequestration, nitrogen fixation). In this study, viability of bio-fencing is examined in terms of functionality, implementation issues, and economic and environmental returns.
