I am a farmer with a cardamom plantation in idukki district kerala, and coconut plantation in theni district, tamil nadu. I am looking for ways and means to improve effectiveness of existing resources as i am not in a position to invest a lot of money at this juncture.
Presently I have started vermicomposting as a means to use some farm waste (coconut dried leaves) along with cowdung. I am following the pit method and am having excellent returns. I am looking for ways to enrich this vermicompost. I am also looking for ways to tie up with the local village in order to collect the organic waste from the village.
Am hoping to get some information on Organic Waste Converters.
Am looking into bee keeping as a method to increase pollination of cardamom.
Hoping to grow fish in the semi-natural exisitng ponds.
Also looking for intercropping with coconut ideas. The trees are mature and yielding.Thinking of going for cocoa. Need to know if cadburys is still providing support.
Have a lot more questions…Dont wanna overwhelm!
