Abstract:
The present investigations entitled “Estimation of soil carbon pool under different land use systems in Kashmir valley” was conducted in Srinagar district of Kashmir valley at two sites viz., Site A and Site B. Results revealed that the tree based land use systems aside, the soil organic carbon stock was higher in grasslands (75t ha-1) at site A and (76.16)at site B, than in agriculture (65.17 t ha-1) at A and (63.36 t ha-1) at B, vegetables (63.75 t ha-1) at A and (65.52 t ha-1) at B and wasteland/uncultivated land (30.45 t ha-1) at A and (29.31 t ha-1) at B. At site A, Dachigam maximum carbon stock (556.731 t ha-1) was recorded in natural forest-Blue Pine land use system at the elevation range of 1700-2000 m a.s.l. Whereas, at site B, upper Dachigam, maximum carbon stock (524.039 t ha-1) was recorded in the forest based land use system viz. natural forest-Blue Pine situated at the altitudinal range of 2000-2500 m a.s.l.
