  • Components of the water balance were measured at three spacings of Eucalyptus grandis planted into a pasture dominated by Setaria sphacelata cv. Kazungula in an agroforestry system. The experiment was carried out in a sub-tropical climate near Brisbane, Australia, where mean annual rainfall is 1099 mm. Total water loss per unit area by evaporation increased, and drainage losses decreased with increasing planting density. At the closest spacing, subsoil water contents were depleted to wilting… CONTINUE READING
