The most productive authors, organisations, most influential journals and most functional sub-field in the area of Agroforestry research have been evaluated. It is clear that relative growth rate of total research output decreased gradually. The growth rate is 0.70 in 2007 which decreased up to 0.16 in 2016. The mean relative growth rate of the during period of 0.266. The whole study period resulted the mean doubling time for total output is 2.716 years. These studies can help researchers to comprehend the magnitude of Agroforestry research in India and establish future research directions.
