Abstract:

The study was conducted in 8 year old east-west and north-south directions bund plantation at CCS HAU, Hisar during 2015-2016 to evaluate the effect of Eucalyptus tereticornis bund planting on the yield of agricultural crops and soil properties in Haryana. Total biomass yield of dhaincha was significantly affected up to 3 m distance from tree line of both east-west and north-south planted rows of eucalypts. Different aspects had no significant effect on total biomass yield of dhaincha. The reduction in total biomass yield of dhaincha was 27.2 percent at 0-3 m distance from tree line over 15-18 m distance under both the north-south and east-west planted row of Eucalyptus. The grain yield of barley (adjacent to tree row (0-3 m) was significantly less than other distances in both east-west and north-south planted eucalypts. Eucalyptus planted in east-west direction has attained 75.6 cm girth and 21.3 m height whereas in north-south direction it has attained girth of 74.1 cm and height of 20.3 m. The soil organic carbon and available N, P and K content were significantly highest in the western aspect in 0-3 m distance and these decreased with increase in the distance from the tree in different aspects.
