Ecological impact of rubber (Hevea brasiliensis) plantations in north east India: 2. Soil properties and biomass recycling

Ecological impact of rubber (Hevea brasiliensis) plantations in north east India: 2. Soil properties and biomass recycling

Indian Journal of Rubber Research 4(2): 134-141

The influence of rubber (Hevea brasiliensis) and teak (Tectona grandis) plantations and natural forest on soil properties, nutrient enrichment, understorey vegetation and biomass recycling was studied at 3 sites in the Siliguri subdivision (Darjeeling district) of West Bengal. All 3 sites had comparatively high input of organic carbon enriching the soil. Teak had the highest organic matter content in the surface layers.
