Abstract
Presently, there is great awareness across the globe on the use of biomass as substitute for fossil fuel due to the incessant increase in global warming. Many projects on agro-forestry have been embarked by different countries, international organization and agro-allied companies. Most of these projects appear to be a key tool for transformation of both socio-economic and climatic condition. However, the contribution of these project in terms of sustainable development for the production of food and local people, if not properly monitored may pose a risk to food security in different region of the world. There is need for urgent attention to the emergence of bio-fuel as alternative to fossil fuel, since forestry and agriculture?s biomass are used for conversion of bio-energy apart from sawmill residues, construction and demolition waste. These activities have indirect effect on the soil fertility. For example, wheat straw that would normally be plowed into the soil are baled and removed after the grain has been harvested; also, branches that would usually decompose on the forest floor after timber harvest are compressed into bundles for efficient transport to a power plant. If this trend continue, the displacement of agricultural and forestry systems as a result of the use of methods that generate biomass for bio-energy is likely to affect soil carbon stocks; because it will alter the balance between organic matter inputs and losses from the soil carbon pool
