Abstract:
The experiment was carried out in the research farm of Department of Forestry, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, Haryana. Treatments were made in an on going, already established 7 and 8 years eucalyptus plantation experiment with different wheat cultivars, adapted to three levels of spacings viz. 3 × 3 m, 6 × 1.5 m and 17 × 1 × 1 m. In this study the effect of different spacings of eucalyptus on growth, yield attributing parameters and production of wheat cultivars in semi-arid region of Haryana. Among wheat cultivars, variety HD-2967 produced significantly higher growth and yield in paired row (17×1×1 m) planting than planting at 6×1.5 m and 3×3 m during both the year of experimentation. Growth and biomass attributing parameters of wheat varieties (WH-1105, WH-542, HD-2967, HD-943 and DPW-621-50) reduced significantly under different spacings of eucalyptus in comparison to sole crop (devoid of tree). Paired row (17 × 1 × 1 m) planting of eucalyptus was found to be best w.r.t. wheat growth and biomass production followed by 6 × 1.5 m and 3 × 3 m. Among wheat varieties, HD-2967 was observed shade and stress tolerant variety.
