In the present investigation, an attempt was made to demonstrate how regular scientific harvesting and silvicultural management practices could avoid over congestion and enhance quality and overall productivity of old existing bamboo plantations in India.

Soil organic carbon has been ignored since long because it was treated as a dead biomass but after the awareness related to climate change its importance has been recognized. A study was conducted to eliminate the SOC pool under different land uses in Rudrapryag district of Uttarakhand.

The performance of three wheat varieties and three paddy varieties were assessed under five-year old Populus deltoides plantation at different distances from tree base and control.

Present paper illustrates the litter and nutrient dynamics of Shisham (Dalbergia sissoo Roxb.) forests at 1-3 years aged growing in Tarai belt of Kumaon of Uttarakhand. The objectives of this study were to determine the litter inputs, nutrients (NPK) and their dynamics.

During the present study it was observed that the Forest Development Agencies and Village Forest Committees play an important role in National Afforestation Programs by protection and conservation of natural resources through their active involvement.

It is widely believed that agroforestry holds considerable potential as a major land management alternative for conserving soil as well maintaining soil fertility and productivity. The present study was carried out in established plantations of five agroforestry tree species at the main campus of Dr. Y. S. Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan, Himachal Pradesh during the year 2008-2009.

The present report gives an account of the results of research carried out on litter production, accumulation and nutrient return through rainfall, stem flow, throughfall and interception to soil litter fall, under Casuarina-Black Gram Agroforestry Models.

The present study was conducted in established plantations of Eucalyptus tereticornis in Dr. Y. S. Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni (Solan), Himachal Pradesh.

The article highlights the regression models to estimate the biomass of twelve shrub species commonly found in the Western Himalaya. After analysis it was found that for most of the species log linear and curvilinear prediction equation gave coefficient of determination with higher value which show the fitness of the equation to precision.

Natural forages play an important role in the livestock based rural economy in developing countries like India. In this paper an attempt has been made to divide whole of India into four major natural silvipastoral cover that will help in forage resource planning and execution of various programmes for sustainable livestock production.
