Abstract:
Hardwickia binata comes under the endemic biodiversity category and it is multipurpose tree species useful for agroforestry and dry land areas with medicinal, fodder, fuel, fibre, timber and manure utility/ potential. It is essential to know more about its growth performance in arid condition. In present studies the attempts have been made to investigate the growth performance of 30 year’s old planted H. binata tree at different spacing and amelioration of soil. Tree growth data viz., height, diameter at breast height (dbh), clear bole length and crown diameter were measured during the study under rainfed condition of fixed sample trees in rows on a yearly basis in all the treatments and soil sample were collected. The result revealed that H. binata tree growth performance was found better at 5x5 m2 spacing in respect of dbh, clear bole length and volume in rainfed condition. Soil pH was lower at closer spacing and higher at wider spacing and EC and OC was higher at closer spacing and low at wider spacing. This study results may be useful for plantation of H. binata trees on farmer’s fields, road side and agroforetry in arid condition.
