The study was conducted during 2015-16 at the research farm of CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, India to assess the effect of three-tier system (Eucalypts-Kinnow-Wheat) on production potential of wheat. The experiment was laid out following split-plot design with three replications. Wheat variety HD-2967 was sown to test its performance under pre-established five years old plantation of Kinnow alone and Kinnow +Eucalypts in comparison to control (devoid of trees). The data revealed that the significantly higher grain and straw yield of wheat (2.79 and 4.15 t/ha respectively,) was observed in case of agri-horti (kinnow + wheat) system as compared to agri-silvi-horti system (1.46 t/ha and 2.26 t/ha respectively) when 20% extra dose of nitrogenous fertilizer was added as compared to the recommended dose. Further, it was also observed that the agroforestry system tremendously affected the soil physical and chemical properties. It was observed that the soil organic carbon and electrical conductivity were significantly affected while there was no effect on soil pH. Similarly, soil nutrient status was also significantly affected show a significant decrease in N and K concentrations after the harvest of the wheat crop.

Keywords: Wheat, Eucalypts, Kinnow, Agroforestry and India.
