Abstract:

The present study was conducted in 2014–15 in five tehsils (Behat, Deoband, Nakur, Rampur Maniharan and Saharanpur) of Saharanpur district which is north-western part of Uttar Pradesh, India to observe the effect of shading of border plantation of poplar (Populus deltoides) on wheat crop. The four parameters (total tillers per plant, ineffective tillers per plant, grain yield and biological yield) were recorded. The total tillers were significantly more in unshaded area, while ineffective tillers were significantly increased in shaded areas of wheat crop in both the years. Grain yield was significantly reduced in all villages of Behat, Nakur, Rampur Maniharan and Saharanpur tehsils, while in Deoband tehsil yield was at par in two villages in shaded and unshaded wheat crop. The maximum reduction in yield due to shading was recorded in Behat tehsils with 48.20 to 49.62 percent. Biological yield (grain+straw) was also significantly reduced in shaded area by border plantation of poplar. Results in 2015 were confirmatory for all parameters as similar trend.
