Abstract:
Agroforestry systems shows greater diversity among village’s on farm production of various crops, trees, shrubs, vegetables, medicinal plants on the same field. Current Investigation shows literacy rate of farmers and their family become gradually increasing (82%) in this block. Major domesticated animals are cow and buffalo. Milk production enhanced extra income of various categories of farmer’s. Systems of agroforestry provide opportunity to deliver multiple output from per unit area of land. Present study revealed combination of tree and crops may easily cultivated on any kind of land on given areas and most dominated system is agri-silviculture which is most probably adopted by the farmers (80%) another systems such as silvi-pasture (10%), agri-silvi-pasture (8%) respectively. Dominant trees species are Eucalyptus species, Tectona grandis, Dalbergia sissoo, Acacia nilotica and Mangifera indica, Psydium guajava, Emblica officinalis are common fruit species. We had identified production potential of various field crops under tree and fruit trees. It given better response but on an average 10% losses of yield of arable crops through interaction of trees from above and below the ground. Hence, Agroforestry systems gives better response in terms of increasing tree cover to fulfill the criteria of 33% forest area recorded to (1988, National forest policy) needed for any geographical area of the country.
