Mechanisation in agriculture farming

Dear Members,

further to our my thread in acquiring land nr foot hills, just like to understand what are the maximum possibilities of mechanization and its economics.

Assume land is 20 acere

Farming lay out

  1. 5 acre coconut  - hope aprx 350 trees can be planted. in between ginger or elephent roorts or any other. else green fodder

  2. 5 acere Mango

  3. 5 acere lemon

  4. 5 acere mix of various fruits, flowers, …etc

Scope for Mechanization

a) Fencing - Solar
    Drenching - Drenching needed in border to reduce wild bores and other animals 4 x 4 for entire plot of 30acere

b) Digging pits for plantation

c) to remove weeds

d) plaguing

e) coconut climbing

Hope members could contribute/help to identify maximum mechanisations with minimal cost.

With the above lay out, expected that min Rs 10 lac could be generated 5 yrs onwards.  For that understand we need to spend aprx Rs 75k - 1lac per acere per year till 5 year. so total aprx 15 lacs till 5 years.

For midterm revenue we need to rear either cow or goat farm as well as some flower cultivation …

Using JCB is best otpion.. You  can have water filled in this trench and use for Fish Farming.

b) Digging pits for plantation

You can have post hole digger or Earth Auger attachement for tractor. Earth Auger attachement cost 50K. You can own only this and always rent the tractor.

c) to remove weeds

Tiller is good or you can have dicot crop and use it as live mulch.

Dear Mr.Mathews,

Dairying is a much needed item as you need the dung to make the total land fertile. Goats i don’t think will have market there. Milk and milk products will have demand in that place provided you offer fresh milk, curd, butter,ghee etc.

Plan these things systematically.Put mechanization to the maximum.

All the best.
