Abstract:

Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, mainly carbon dioxide (CO2) can be mitigated by the planting of trees and shrubs. Appropriate agroforestry practices in Haveri include field and farmyard shelterbelts, monoculture plantations and managed woodlots. The objective of study was to determine the amount of carbon held in ten year old shelterbelt trees of five different species in Hanumanamatti agricultural research station of Ranebennur Taluk at Haveri District. Among the five different tree species, maximum above and below ground biomass production was recorded in Acacia auriculiformis at all stages of observations followed by Azadirachta indica and Dalbergia sissoo. The maximum carbon sequestration potential was recorded in Acacia auriculiformis at initial reading, after 3 month, 6 month, 9 month and 12 month after initial reading was 65.01 t/ha, 70.96 t/ha, 78.14 t/ha, 84.59 t/ha, and 91.15 t/ha respectively. The findings suggest that Acacia auriculiformis, Azadirachta indica and Dalbergia sissoo are suitable to varying degrees and have implications for shelterbelt elsewhere in agroclimatic zones of Karnataka. The paper will discuss the results of this particular study and the broader implications of this work.
