Abstract:

An experiment was conducted at the farmer field village- Majitha, District- Jabalpur during the rabi season of 2016-17 and 2017-18. A field experiment was conducted during winter season to find out the biomass production and carbon storage by weeds, wheat crop and tree under eucalyptus based agroforestry system in randomized block design with three replications. The result revealed that the weed management practices increase the crop biomass production and reduce the weeds biomass. The biomass production was higher in agroforestry system than crop alone or tree alone. The highest total biomass production of agroforestry system was found under hand weeding 30 DAS (39.71 and 39.21 t ha-1 yr-1) and total biomass production was found between 39.71 to 37.62 and 39.21 to 36.87 t ha-1 yr-1 during both the year as compare to crop alone and tree alone. The carbon storage is depend on biomass of tree and crop. In wheat crop hand weeding found higher carbon storage 4.26 and 3.83 t ha-1 and lower in weedy check during both the year. When weeds are growing freely it stored 1.18 and 1.19 t C ha-1 during both the year. The eucalyptus stored 53.17 to 55.75 and 68.05 to 71.41 t carbon ha-1 during 2016-17 and 2017-18, respectively. The wheat – Eucalyptus tereticornis based agroforestry system showed higher carbon stock 17.18 to 18.24 and 17.13 to 18.16 t ha-1 yr-1 as compared to crop alone 4.26 and 3.83 t ha-1 yr-1.
