Abstract:
Study shows the biomass and carbon sequestration under different plant geometries, i.e., 10×20, 10×10, 10×6.5 and 10×5 m of Mahaneem based agro-forestry systems and sole cropping. Destructive sampling was used to calculate the biomass and carbon content of A. excelsa and carbon sequestration was also calculated. The total biomass of crops viz. wheat and mustard was calculated by adding biomass of all the components (grain, straw and root weight). It stated that the higher biomass (28.63 t/ha) and carbon sequestration (13.13 t/ha/yr) in Mahaneem was recorded under 10×5 m plant geometry, whereas, the maximum carbon sequestration (16.5 t/ha/year) was recorded in Mahaneem + wheat agro-forestry system under 10×5 m plant geometry closely followed by Mahaneem + Indian mustard agri-silviculture agro-forestry system with same plant geometry. It shows that wheat sequestered more carbon than Indian mustard.
