Considering the importance of solar radiation in the photosynthetic process and that plants grown under extreme shading conditions may present a reduction in their productive capacity (Bosi et al., 2014), the selection of forest species capable of generating a balance between the amount of solar radiation intercepted by the upper stratum of plants and the amount available to the annual crop are essential for achieving the productive success of the system (Oliveira et al., 2016), because it's the same that conditions the microclimatic characteristics generated to the understory.
