Abstract:

The present study was conducted to inspect the effect of Grewia optiva Drummond based traditional agrisilviculture system on productivity of Vigna mungo. The crown spread of trees and distance from tree trunk was considered for quantifying effect of integration on the crop growth and production. Radial transects at right angle to each other were drawn for studying various growth and yield parameters at 1m, half the crown radius, perimeter of crown radius and outside the canopy (control) by plotting quadrat of 1×1 m2. Results revealed that crown spread reduced the growth of Vigna mungo which consequently affected the yield of the crop suggesting light competition under heavier canopy. Further, distance from tree trunk was found to be positively correlated with growth and yield parameters suggesting better productivity of Vigna mungo outside tree canopy.
