ABSTRACT
The field study was conducted in a private Agro-forestry Farm at Aata in district Jalaun (U.P.). The sowing of berseem (Trifolium alexendrinum L.) var. Verdan was done during the rabi season in 3 years old Eucalyptus planted at 6x2 m spacing and at the same time the crop was also sown in the adjacent field devoid of trees (control). The data recorded on plant height, stem diameter, yield and economics revealed that no doubt all these parameters were heigh in case of sole crops of berseem but if we consider the need of the farmer that requires regular income from his piece of land then it seemed practical that berseem as fodder could be grown successfully in standing Eucalyptus with additional income of Rs. 3219/ha.

Key words :Agri-silviculture, Allelopathic, Eucalyptus, Trifolium alexendrinum.
