Abstract:

Agroforestry a complex land use system both ecologically and economically have innumerous role to play in conservation of natural resources along with its economic viability. Various tree canopy management activities like pruning and lopping along with applied resources have significant effect on soil. Litter fall, decomposition, leaching and residual effect have great potential on soil health of the system. Present system involving lopped trees and organically mannured crop have shown varying effect on soil properties. Tree lopping had significantly affected various soil properties where the maximum EC (0.13 dS-1 m), Organic carbon percentage (1.33%) and available Nitrogen (418.02 kg/ha) were observed in T0 (No lopping).Among organic manures S1 (FYM) has shown maximum soil pH (7.08) and EC (0.12 dS-1 m) whereas maximum organic carbon was obtained in both S1 and S3 (1.37%), available nitrogen (437.89 kg/ha) was found to be maximum in treatment S3 (Vermicompost) and maximum available soil phosphorus (48.17 kg/ha) and available soil potassium (327.93 kg/ha) was observed in S2 (Jeevamruth). Interaction effect of lopping and organic manure (T*S) has shown differential results. Overall application of organic manures has shown improvement in soil properties and lopping had differential effect on soil due to varied leaf fall and edaphic processes.
