Evaluation of different promising agroforestry tree species on the soil health in sub temperate sub humid mid hill zone of Himachal Pradesh

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.
