    An elementary profit-cost analysis for an agroforestry system is presented involving only two crops where, as usual, the goal is to maximize the profit function. That is, the producer must decide how much of each resource is to be dedicated to each of the crops to have the maximum profit within the constraints of the resources available.This analysis was motivated by recent research (Duarte 1992, Rodríguez 1991) in which optimization of a system is obtained invol-ving only one crop, contrary to the objective of establishing an agroforest system. The study of the problem in a simple framework shows the necessity of including at least one constraint, relative to the risk that comes with the obtained profit, and then avoid mono-culture where the risk is very great compared with other alternatives. The measure of risk used was the multiplicative inverse of the profit-cost ratio, which also allows the inference of some additional conclusions, such as the importance of estimates of profits and benefits to determine rational solutions, the differential role of the resource land relative to that of capital, and finally the valuation of forest plantations.
