Work experience
- I have been working as project leader on some of the agroforestry system (agrosilviculture, agrosilvihorticulture, agrohorticulture and alley cropping systems) since 1991 to utilize class III and above lands of rainfed alfisols._x000D_
- In agrosilvihorticultural system, aonla (Emblica officinalis) as fruit tree, Leucaena leucocephaha as MPTS and blackgram as intercop included in the system under rainfed sub-marginal lands. The systems provided 75-120 kg fruit per tree from aonla, 1033 kg fuel wood and 910 kg fodder per hectare from Leucaena andizyphus mauritiana) as fruit tree and intercrops (blakgram, greengram, seasame and pigeonpea) were included and initiated on sub-marginal soil under rainfed conditions. This system provided 1790 kg/ha fruit, 2130 kg/ha fuelwood and 1850 kg/ha fodder from ber and 400 to 422 kg/ha grain yield from different intercrops. This system was proved as most profitable system under rainfed conditions._x000D_
- An experiment was also initiated for efficient utilizati
