TLDR
Three rotations of eucalyptus in agroforestry were selected for comparative study of its returns and relative loss to the crops, in order to ascertain the optimum rotation: i.e. the one giving the maximum internal rate of return with minimum loss to agricultural crops.
Carbon sequestration estimates for forestry options under different land-use scenarios in india
TLDR
A comparative estimate of land-use and carbon sequestration potential of different forestry options has been done for India using the Land Use and Carbon Sequestration (LUCS) model, which estimates the amount of carbon sequestered by approximating land- use and relative biomass changes in the landscape over time.

Observations on the rooting patterns of some agroforestry trees in an arid region of north-western India
TLDR
Root architecture of 6-year-old trees of 9 indigenous and 3 exotic species growing in arid climate of north-western India shows large variation in horizontal and vertical spread of roots, which has implications for the ecological niche of the species, and its usefulness in agroforestry systems.

TLDR
Sap flow measurements of a Douglas-fir stand gave transpiration values similar to those obtained by the water balance method, which fell below potential evapotranspiration when available soil water decreased below 30% of its maximum value.
