A friend of mine has a three acre three year old eucalyptus farm but the growth of the plants was not upto the mark as he is having a regular job and couldn't provide sufficient time to farming. Now he wishes to plan for inter crops between the eucalyptus plants simultaneously as he got work from home option for some months due to covid. So, any guidance by experienced people with inter crop knowledge could be helpful.

Generally no inter crops are raised in Eucalyptus plantations under rain fed cultivation . Under irrigated conditions if space between plants is 14 x 2 meters inter crops such as turmeric, ginger, wheat , sugarcane, banana etc can be grown.

Thank you for the information, it is on irrigation basis and not rain fed cultivation, but not sure of the spacing between plants.

Generally Eucalyptus plants spacing is 8 x 5 feet in which tractor can be moved for inter cultivation getting 1000 plants per acre. In case of inter cultivation more space is required. Farmers rarely taking up inter cultivation in eucalyptus plantations.
