New to farming. One and half acr ready for farming. Water is available. Guidence sought for coconut and aceca nut plantation regarding 1. Right time to plant. 2. Which breed 3. Availability of 100 sapling.4. how interplantation is done? hmmmm I have many more questions.
Generally Coconut and areca are not planted together. since arecanut grows faster then the coconut, its generally avoided planting them together, However, if the coconut plantation is old for example 6-10 years then you can plant acerca nut between them.
Try Subhash Palekar’s 36X36 model.
Is it because areca nut needs cool environment?
For coconut, how does tissue cultured sapplings score better in terms of being disease free, durability and adoptability, as fast and high yield is assured ?
