Abstract:

This experiment was carried out at farmer’s field to evaluate the performance of different agricultural crops under eucalypts plantation (establishment of plantation on September, 2014) at a spacing of 3.9 × 1.5 m during Rabi season 2014-15 and 2015-16, respectively. After 2 years of plantation, yield of agricultural crops (mustard, wheat, berseem and oat) were reduced significantly under eucalypts plantation in comparison to sole crop (devoid of tree). Among all the agricultural crops, the maximum yield was recorded in berseem (6.12 and 4.94 t/ha) which was closely followed by oat (5.50 and 5.19 t/ha) under eucalypts plantation during both the years of experiment. The highest per cent decrease in yield over control was recorded in wheat (18.5%) and it followed the order: mustard (12.9%) > berseem (7.21%) > oat (4.47%) during 2015-16. The yield of all the winter crops reduced significantly with the increase in age of eucalypts plantation under this study. Among the agricultural crops grown under eucalypts plantation, berseem and oat was observed significantly higher yield under study during 2014-15 and 2015-16. However, yield of other agricultural crops (wheat and mustard) was reduced remarkable in both the years of eucalypts plantation over control. On the other hand, among all the agricultural crops grown under eucalypts plantation, the maximum net return were found in oat crop (Rs. 26,535 and 14,580 /ha), which was closely followed by berseem with the net returns (Rs. 8693 and 7086 /ha) during 2014-15 and 2015-16, respectively. On the basis of the above results it was found that oat crop had given higher benefit followed by berseem when it was grown under eucalypts plantation.
