Hi, This is Vignesh I am new here. I live in New York and work as a technologist and planning to come back to my home town Coimbatore soon and revive the coconut farm of my family that was left unattended for almost a decade now.
This is quite an emotional undertaking for me as it’s about going back to my roots and making sure we don’t abandon coconut farming which was the bread and butter for my family for decades
I’m new to this forum but if someone could assist me or point me to the right resource that would be great.
- what is the best way for a newbie to get started is there any consultants I should hire or speak to seasoned farmers?
- I want to do it in the right way do a soil test and handle this whole endeavor quite scientifically. Is this right and who would be the best point of contact in Coimbatore (Agri univ?, CBD?)
- we have almost 2 hectares what would be the high level investment and returns?
- any other info I must be aware of before I get started - pls point it out to me
Looking forward for your help.
