Re: wind breaking plantation
   

Windbreaks are necessary in areas where strong winds prevail. The distance between the strips of windbreaks varies with location. Where winds blow horizontally across the plantation, a common rule of thumb is to space windbreaks at a distance of 20-30 times the height of windbreak trees. Where winds come in different directions and angles, it is necessary to have windbreaks half as close.

In general, a good windbreak should be permeable, allowing some air to pass through.

Grow wind breaks such as silver oak, dadaps, casuarina, daincha and sububul.

Re: wind breaking plantation
   

 Dear Sir,

There is lot of cricism against rasing subabul for using them as wind breaks.The following are the adverse remarks;I heard

01.They need lots of water and deplete the Table water in the area affecting the  water resource to other palnts

02.They would suufer diseases like gummosis and  may affect other pants and may be difficult to control.

Pl guide me how far these criticism aganst subabul is true?

Re: wind breaking plantation
   
Sir,
Subabul is a good hedhe crop, you may have to prune after attaining desirable height,so that it should not bear any flower.If not it leads to problem.
Under this situations it is better to have Dhaincha,Casurina ,or silverock as suggested by the previous expert.
