Diversity in agroforestry systems is very important for their ecological sustainability. Extensive plantations with a single strain of Leucaena leucocephala in the Philippines and elsewhere has led to severe psyllid pest epidemics, damaging more than 50 percent of the trees (Lapis, 1986). Brewbaker (1985, this volume), drew attention to the genetic vulnerability to pest attack of single variety plantations of Leucaena leucocephala. Similarly, overdependence on a single genotype of the stem-nodulating Sesbania rostrata may lead to pest and disease outbreaks.
