|Melia Dubia Tree(1.5 Year)|
In today's picture, the middle men are earning the good income from agriculture products, and the farmer who produces getting less from what he produced. Since the many short term crops need more labors, transportation and inventory cost, the final gain for the farmers are very less. To make good revenues as per acre, we need to cultivate medium to long term crops keeping the cost to minimal and also good revenue in future.
Once we decide to cultivate the tree means first go with good seedling collection from Forest Departments. When direct sowing the seed without treatment , the germination percentage is less(20%). So we do alternate soaking and drying in cold water, the period of germination is 20 days and 75% germination is expected. Those having difficulty in germination, can get the seedlings(sapling) from the Plant Nursery.
Then we start planting in beginning of the rainy season, so irrigation is minimal or can use drip irrigation for 2 years.
The suggested Pit size is 2 feet x 2 feet. 10x10 feet is standard specing for better girth.
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.
Melia dubia has 90% less side branches, so less labors are needed to maintain.
Upto 5 years, ground nut, chilli, turmeric, blackgram as inter crops can be cultivated.
Timely weeding and pruning is needed .
It is commonly found in the hills at elevation ranging from 600-1800m.

This is true and also the melia dubia seeds will not germinate at once or at a streth. If we put some thousands of seeds we will get some 100 seeds will get germinated So we cannot get thousands of seedlings. The melia dubia plant grow very fast. This plant attain the DBH on completion of 6 eyars minimum 100 cms maximum of 165 cms. The density of the tree will be 330Kg/Cubic meter. The melia dubia is very opt for biomass energy product.

30% of the trees we leave without cutting for 8 years means it can be used in plywood industries which will fetch rs 6000 to 10000 per tree ( 6000*300 = Rs. 18,00000).
The Income Details are as follows.
The Plantation distance be 10 Feet to 10 Feet 400 to 450 Plants can Accommodated in an Acre depending on the soil Fertility and Irrigation.
