Carbon stock and tree biomass assessment of agroforestry systems in Bihar

Abstract:
Climate change and the greenhouse effect are currently regarded as critical hot topics. An investigation was conducted on 'Carbon stock and biomass assessment in agroforestry systems (AFS) in Bihar' by focusing on these current issues. The research was carried out on three agroforestry systems: Kadamb (Anthocephalus cadamba Miq.) based agrisilvicultural system, Simarouba (Simarouba glauca DC) based agrisilvicultural system, Litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) based agrihorticultural system, and one open system (without trees). Aboveground biomass, belowground biomass, long-lived carbon storage, and CO2 mitigation by trees were all determined, in addition to the biophysical parameters. Among the three plantations, Simarouba trees had the highest carbon storage and CO2 mitigation ability of any tree species. This study backs up the idea that these trees could be a good pick for agroforestry development because they have good carbon storing and CO2 mitigation capabilities.
