Management of Morus alba Linn. and Grewia optiva Roxb. for degraded lands

Van Vigyan 33(2): 109-113
Management of Morus alba Linn. and Grewia optiva Roxb. for degraded lands
A study on the establishment and management of the multipurpose trees Grewia optiva and Morus alba is reported from a degraded site along the bouldery torrent of the river Tons For establishment of the trees, soil working up to 50 cm depth was optimum. The tap root of G. optiva was confined to 1-66 cm depth; 45% of the roots remained in the top 0-30 cm and 51% in the 30-60 cm soil profile. The M. alba roots penetrated up to 1.32 m depth with a horizontal spread of 5.73 m.
