Azadirachta indica and Prosopis cineraria species contribution to agroforestry/ tree cover in arid region of Rajasthan

Export citation

The accurate assessment of area under agroforestry in different agro-climatic regions of India can be done with the help of geospatial technologies. In the arid region of Rajasthan, Prosopis cineraria (Khejri) and Azadirachta indica (Neem) are the major tree species found growing on farmlands. These species are known as lifeline of the desert and have both multiple uses including fuelwood and medicinal values. The accurate mapping of these species is essential for knowing their contribution in green tree cover and carbon storage at district level. Six districts of Rajasthan were selected for mapping agroforestry and these two species. Khejri and Neem trees have been identified with the help of high resolution multispectral LISS IV data and mapped by applying object oriented classification technique.
