Abstract:
The main purpose of this review to provide/generates an idea about how Eucalyptus behaves with associated crops, i.e interaction between both components. Both components are studied in many aspects, comprises outcome of yield which depends upon the age of trees; along with nutritional studies of Eucalyptus at various age groups. In the study of nutrients (NPK) it is reviewed that all the three nutrients increase as the age of trees increases. Further, litterfall and decomposition are the two major processes responsible for soil enrichment in agroforestry systems. As the depth increases, N and K are decreased in sole as well as in intercropped fields. This suggested that trees of Eucalyptus should be harvested during 7-8 years of age, for getting more income. So, if Farmer grow Eucalyptus as a sole, he will get Net Profit of Rs. 2057672=00 and if it is grown with wheat, cereals and Aromatic crops from initial stage to 8 years of age than a farmer can get Rs. 3163385=24,only.
