Mahogany plant supplier economics farming cultivation agriculture project

Mahogany plant supplier economics farming cultivation agriculture project.

MAHOGANY PROJECT

Mahogany is a kind of wood the straight grained, reddish brown timber. The three species are Swietenia macrophylla, Swietenia mahagoni and Swietenia humilis. Swietenia species are classified officially as "genuine mahogany". Mahogany is a commercially important lumber prized for its beauty, durability and color and used for paneling and to make furniture, boats, musical instruments and other items.













The Mahogany tree ''sweitenia'' which grow as natural populations in tropical America, Asia and Africa is a high value timber tree known for its redwood color, strength, durability, water resistance and aesthetic appeal. The Mahogany tree can grows over 60 to 70 Ft. high and reaching around 4 to 5 Ft. diameter. 









The continual increasing demand for hardwood timber, Mahogany can offer a tax effective investment in forestry make mahogany most demanding timber plant in this region. Mahogany is the most prized timber tree of India. It can be grown in almost every part of the country except the dry western zone, although the best Mahogany Plant develops in well drained deep alluvial soil. 


Land Preparation:

             Prior to planting Mahogany must be ensured that the selected site is well thoroughly cleared of weeds. Dig pit of size 1.5x1.5x1.5ft. During digging of the pit, care should be thoroughly cleaned of weeds.


             The pit mixture should compose of well decomposed organic manure (FYM or compost),  de-oiled neem cake and Top soil (kept aside during digging of the pit.) The pit mixture is prepared by thoroughly mixing equal parts of organic manure and topsoil, along with 200 grams of de-oiled neem-cake. The pit-mixture thus prepared, should be used for filling the pit. 

Procedure of planting:

 1) Dig the pit and keep it open for 1-2 weeks.
 2) Then close the pit with the soil available with digging.
 3) After 2 days, open the pit slightly 1/2 feet , put Organic Manure( Vermicompost ) of 0.5 kg for each pit and plant the seedling. If sapling  height is more, can use support pole for each pit to avoid breaking of sapling.
 4) And irrigate in same day.

Pit Filling & Spacing:



              The pits must be filled as much as possible, only with the prepared pit-mixture. If the topsoil is insufficient, coarse river sand may be used as an inert substitute, which also increases porosity and aeration. A peg may be placed in the Centre of the pit for identification during planting. The pits must be filled at least 2 weeks before planting, to allow for the pit-mixture to settle. The recommended spacing for the plant is a square or triangular grid type with dimension of 6.0 X 6.5 ft. or 8 ft * 8 ft or 10* 10 ft.

Irrigation:

               Watering has to be done immediately after planting. During the first two week watering should be done alternate day. Subsequently irrigation can be done once in 3 to 4 days depending upon the soil and weather conditions. In non-irrigated lands micro-irrigation systems are recommended. 


Fertilizer Application & Doses:

                 First year N: P: K (17:17:17) & Micro Nutrients 200gms. / Plant / month, except dormancy (Dec - Jan) period. Every month this has to be split and applied through pocket manuring. Make hole 1 ft. away from the plants and the depth of the pit should be 1 ft. Apply the fertilizer in the hole and fill it with the soil.



Micro nutrient application 1 gm / lt. Of water, foliar application once in 15 days for 1 year. 

Maintenance:

             The site must be cleaned of weeds and the soil around the plant should be kept loose and well aerated.


             Mahogany can grow on a variety of soils. The quality of its growth, however, depends on the depth, structure, porosity, drainage and moisture-holding capacity of the soil. It develops best on deep, well-drained and fertile soils. Mahogany prefers moist, warm tropical climate. It can withstand extremes of temperature, but maximum & minimum shade temperatures of 25- 44. 0 c is the most favorable for its growth. It grows well in rainfall zone of 1200-2500 mm. It prefers a deep, fertile. The sandy soil is considered to be the best soil texture for this tree. It fails to grow in the soil with pH below 6.5.The calcium content of the soil is also an important factor; calcium deficiency in the soil results in stunted growth of Mahogany Planting. 

Harvesting, yield & Returns:

             The highest growth is recorded under plantation condition in BIHAR and tarai belt of NEPAL. At 10 years of age the height growth was 23.1m and diameter was 28.7 cm. From the general yield table in the first quality Mahogany at 10 years of age, the average diameter is 27.2 cm and average height is 23.2m. 



The number of trees per acre is 1200-1500. The total yield of stem timber is about 36000 Cft timbers on good sites. At the best we may expect a tree to produce a maximum of 20 Cft of timber in 10 years under best conditions of intensive management and there could be a maximum of 1500 trees per acre. 

Technical Support:

We also provide technical support for farming. Our Service Department with technically qualified staff provide after sales service and farmers' advisory services to our customers to get better plant establishment and faster growth of Herbal and Horticultural plantations



We have largest network of employees who deliver Plants to customers at their door steps. Free technical services to customers on planting method, management practices and plant protection measures. Our teams of Agricultural Experts periodically visits and supervise the plantations and suggest necessary guidelines to get better growth and higher returns.

After 10  to 12 Years, 1000 plants may give return:

20 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 500/-per cu.ft=Rs 10000 x 1000 trees. - 100.00 Lacs = 1 Crore. (Expected yield from a 10 year old Mahogany tree is more than 30 cu.ft. of wood. For calculation purpose, it is taken as 20 cu.ft. After 10 years, at the time of final cutting, the rate of Mahogany wood is expected to be well above Rs. 1000 per cu.ft. For safer calculation, it is taken as Rs. 500 per cu.ft.)

TISSUE CULTURE TEAK WOOD PLANTATION AND PLANT SUPPLIERS

 Tissue culture Teak farming



INTRODUCTION OF TEAK:

Teak (Tectona grandis) is the most important timber tree in India especially for furniture making. The main purpose of using it is constructing furniture. It can be grown in all region in India except dry western zone. It is one of the most important hardwoods of the world and used for furniture and various purposes. The demand for this wood is growing high across the world. When you are thinking of investing in the farming to earn good revenue from the market then you need to be very conscious and make a pre plane before investing. The teak wood farming can be beneficial for you if you follow the tips of the experienced agricultural professionals.


WHY TISSUE CULTURE TEAK PLANT:-

Fast growing species of Teak Tissue culture plant: (Tectona Grandies). Tissue cultured teak plants have the same characteristics of the mother plant it has no branches and non-flaky trunk. The uniformity in height and girth, results in excellent volume and quality wood. Mother plant is selected after 60 characteristic analysis, hence the clone is highly resistant to diseases and pests. Ready to harvest from 8th year. Returns on yield would be high, as the formation is 75% heart wood and only 25% sapwood. Prevents up to 30% wind damage to other crops when chosen as a fencing plant because of its uniform growth. Can be planted throughout the year.


CLIMATIC CONDITION:-

Teak plants can grow up well in the moisturized area. You can get good quality teak woods in the area with the tropical environment. The maximum temperature of the area should be within 39- 44 o c and the lower temperature should be 13 - 17 o c. An adequate amount of rainfall is also necessary to get a good result in growing the teakwood plants. It grows well in rainfall zone of 1200-2500 mm. 


SOIL:-

The teak wood plants grow well in alluvial soils that are derived from the shale, gneiss, schist, limestone and more. The soil should be well drained and the pH level of the soil should be perfect as well. The waterlogged and high pH levels of the soil are harmful to the growth of the teak wood plants. 6.5 to 7.5 pH level of the soils are ideal for farming the teak wood plants. You should check the condition of the soil it is very well to get the best result in teak wood farming successfully.


LAND PREPERATION:-

The new plants can also be propagated from Tissue culture saplings, cuttings stumps and seeds. It is usually planted when the four to six weeks old. Plough the land thoroughly and level it. The best season to plant the teak is monsoon, most probably after the first rain. Teak can be planted at 3m x 3m, 3m x 4m or 3m x 5m escapement.


IRRIGATION:-

According to the experts, the proper irrigation method can help you to get the best result in growing up teak wood plants successfully. In the irrigation process, you need to check the thinning of the trees as well. You need to give emphasize on the proper irrigation process to get the best result in farming teak wood plants. Need to check the climatic situation of the farming area. Need to check whether the developing plants get at least four months as dry. The irrigation process mainly depends on the climatic situation. The water should not be logged in the soil.


PRUNING:-

This is another important process that you need to maintain when you are cultivating the teakwood plants. Pruning is the removal of branches which increases clear bole height and reduces knots on the main stem. By removing unnecessary branches or twigs, the trees growth will concentrate around the trees main stem and its canopy. The space and size of the spacing between the teakwood plants depend on the quality and variety of the plant. You need to follow the proper process for next thinning process as well.


WEEDING:-

In a young teak plantation weeds including vines, shrubs and grass need to be cleared weekly around teak trees. These weeds compete for light, water and soil nutrients. In a mature teak plantation after the canopy closes, weeding can be done less frequently. 


FERTILIZING:-

The recommended dose per tree is 60 gm of NPK in first year, 110 gm in second year and 160 gm in third year. Apply manure or compost at a dose of 10-12 kg per planting hole before planting the tree. The recommended dose of dolomite is 150-250 g per planting hole, applied at the same time as the manure or compost.


DISEASE CONTROL:-

Teak is not very susceptible to the different pests and diseases. Generally defoliators is a greatest problem. However, chemical control except in nurseries or young plantations is not practical. The life cycles of these pests are so short and follow each other so rapidly that it is not considered cost-effective. The main strategy should be on limiting the food supply by weed control in the first three years.


HARVESTING:-

To provide maximum returns, harvest teak trees when the tree is mature enough to produce good quality wood, at least 8-10 years old and the price for teak timber is high.


YIELD:-

The final production of the teakwood plants depends on the quality of the soil and the variety of the plants. You can get almost 10 to 15 CFT woods from the plants in 8-10 years. The total production of the teakwood depends on the total area of the farming. Price

Dragon Fruit :Dragon Fruit plant suppliers



Dragon Fruits Cost of Cultivation


Dragon Fruit plant cost of cultivation economics benefits and suppliers

Introduction:-

A Dragon Fruit Tree is basically a cactus vine of the Species Hylocereus. It is native to Central Americas but now grown all over the world specially in the tropical countries. It is a Fast Growing vine which requires a vertical cement pole support to grow on and then a ring to fall like an umbrella.
It has a life span of 20+ years, hence proper selection of poles & rings is important. Special RCC poles are casted to ensure a strong & lasting support. Normally four plants per pole are planted to give maximum yield. Proper Pole to Pole and Row to Row spacing is maintained for free movement during harvesting and maintenance work. 

Basic nutrients & fertilizers are periodically applied as per the soil & water properties of each individual plantation. Metal framing is to be avoided as it may cause sun/heat burn to the plants.
Normally North-South rows are preferred in tropical climates where summer temperatures rise above 40 degrees. Excess sun heat may cause sunburn but remedial steps are easily available locally.

Not much disease effect this Plant, common problems like root rot, sunburn, bird attacks etc can be taken care of easily.


Description:-

Dragon fruit - Pithaya, The ‘Wondrous Fruit’ of The 21st Century is set to ring in a revolution in the Indian horticulture scenario. It is a Boon to the farmers and consumers. Originally From The Central Americas It Is Successfully Grown Commercially In Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh And Now Knocking At Our Door In India.



Cultivation Method:-

Soil management

Dragon Fruit plants can tolerate any type of soil, however they grow well in well draining soils. Water retaining soils can cause root rot and to avoid this fatal factor, soil may be mixed with sand or tiny stone gravels to facilitate water drainage.

Climate require

India is a tropical country with moderate climate all round the year. Dragon fruit adapts well to tropical climates. Minor adjustments for extreme Indian climates can overcome all obstacles as far as climatic conditions are concerned. 



Irrigation

Dragon fruit being a cactus requires very less water as compared to other crops/fruits. It can survive without water for months. Best recommended method of irrigation is Drip irrigation. Irrigation by flooding is not recommended as it wastes water and increases work of weeding. Approximately 1 to 2 litres of water per day per plant is sufficient during the summer/dry days. Water requirement may increase or decrease depending upon your soil, climate and Plant health. 




Yields

Dragon fruit normally fruits after 18-24 months after plantation. It is a vegetative fruit plant which normally fruits during or after monsoons. It fruits in 3 to 4 waves during one season. Each Pole fruits approx 40 to 100 fruits per wave. Each fruit weighs about 300 to 1000 grams. One pole normally yields approx 15 to 25 kg of fruits. (Yield of 60/80kgs per pole have been reported in India) These fruits are sold in the market at Rs.300 to 400 per kg, but the general Farm rate is approx between Rs. 125 to 200 per kg.

A general calculation of annual income maybe calculated as follows:

One Acre x 400 Pole x 15 kg (least) x Rs.125 (Minimum) = Rs. 5,62,500=00 per Acre per Year.




Demand in India

A very few farmers in the Sates of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka & Tamil Nadu have taken up Dragon fruit cultivation in India. The total all india area of dragon fruit cultivation maybe less than 100 acres. The awareness and demand for this fruit is huge in India mainly for its taste, nutritional and medicinal properties. India imports 95% of its requirement from Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and Sri Lanka. This fruit also has a great potentiality for exports to the Gulf, European Union and USA.



Annual Bearing Season:-

Dragon fruit bears fruits for five months every year, usually from early summer through mid-fall. 
It begins flowering in early summer, typically in June, with fruit formation occurring shortly afterward. Dragon fruit flowers are open in the evening and last only one evening. The flowers first form as small buttons, or buds, with two or three buds flowering within 13 days of their formation.
It takes the fruits about 50 days to reach maturity after flowering and pollination occurs, and the dragon fruit continues to flower and set new fruits throughout its fruit-bearing season.

Dragon fruit bears fruits for several months each year, and it can continue to produce fruits for decades when provided with adequate care and cultural conditions. Dragon fruit is a relatively long-lived perennial. It can produce its first fruits within one year of its establishment, and it can continue to fruit annually for 20 to 30 years before it begins to decline.

Dragon fruit can grow up to 40 feet tall, with the large and tall specimens producing more fruits than the small, young plants or those reaching the end of their lifespan. Warm weather and moist soil can increase the fruit-bearing season of a dragon fruit plant. In an area where temperatures remain above 80 degrees Fahrenheit, a dragon fruit may flower and set fruits beyond the normal bearing season.

In a cooler climate, the bearing season may be shorter than the usual five months. Cool nighttime temperatures may prolong flower life, giving the blooms more time to become pollinated before they wilt and die, but fruit set isn't affected when the days are warm.
