Last year TNPL ( Karur ) procured 8000 ton Casuarina and Eucalyptus pulp wood trees felled by cyclone @ of Rs 5,575 and Rs 5,000 per ton factory gate rate .
Most of the paper manufacturing companies obtained raw materials to the extent of 49% from government sources, 12 % from own contract plantation sources and 39 % from market sources.
Third party ( timber tender supplier ) procure pulpwood tree @ C&F rate of Rs 4.000-4,500 per ton .
Pulp wood plant nursery is a smart agro business concept , than the pup wood tree plantation

Hi Selvamani,

Growing trees along with crops are known as Agroforestry !
Agroforestry is derived from ecology and is one of the three principle land-use science., other two are agriculture and forestry .
Agroforestry systems having several variations viz. forest farms silvopastures , intercropped fields etc .
Agroforestry is for environmental security !
Agroforestry can adopt to harsh climatic events is greater than agriculture because it is playing an important role in ecosystem services by preventing land degradation , coping with various vagaries of climate .
Agroforestry contributes to soil based ecosystem , above ground and below ground organic inputs that provide food and nutrients needed for soil organisms involved in carbon transformation and nutrient cycling .
Agroforestry system captures water resources from the deep soil layers beyond the reach of crops . Crop roots in drier surface soil may benefit hydraulic lift of water by trees .
Agroforestry trees litter on soil surface and increases the activity of soil biota and reduces exposure of the soil . This can improves water infiltration into the soil and reduces surface runoff .

Agroforestry trees helps to reduce evaporative demand of crops per unit of photosynthesis by lowering windspeed and higher humidity under trees partially compensates increase water use .
Agroforestry trees act as a safety net by capturing leached from topsoil .
Agroforestry trees also reduce specific diversity of weed stand and lead to a change in biomass distribution between weed species .

All I can say man made commercial plant species forest or plantation in the crop land for high monetary gain is a wrong methodology and a well designed scam !
It’s perfect for waste and barren land !

Though agroforestry contributes to an increase in income with different components

However agriculture is all about learning through trial and error
I think you have learnt a great lesson !

Thank you for a clear articulation
