COVER PHOTO. The successful use of Silver oak (Grevillea robusta) as a shade tree in tea (Camellia sinensis) plantations in Western Ghats, India has helped maintain soil moisture, lessen fluctuations in soil temperature, increase relative humidity, provide high organic matter, and promote carbon sequestration. Silver oak in tea plantations demonstrates complementary sharing and efficient utilization of resources for increased productivity (see story on page 14).
