Wheat variety Inqalab-91 was intercropped with poplar (Populus deltoides) trees during 7th and 8th year of its age, grown at densities of 6.10 x 3.66m, 9.10 x 3.66m and 12.10 x 3.66m, at Punjab Forestry Research Institute, Faisalabad. 1000-kernel weight, test weight and grain size was higher under monocropping of wheat as compared to intercropped wheat. Chemical analysis revealed that crude protein, crude fiber, ash and moisture percentage was on higher side under intercropping conditions while crude fat percentage was higher under monocropping conditions of wheat. However, these contents were in standard limits, indicating that physicochemical characteristics of wheat variety inqalab-91 are not negatively effected by poplar tree intercropping under agroforestry system.
