Effect of tree plantation on soil properties, profile morphology and productivity index - Poplar in Yamunanagar District

The changes undergone by physico-chemical properties of soil, profile morphology and the productivity index, as a result of bringing the barren land under Poplar plantation, were evaluated in Yamuna Nagar District of Haryana, where large chunks of land have been raised as block plantation with Poplar. The soils supporting Poplar plantations were enriched with organic carbon and nutrients.
