In my farm in virudhanagar district in tamilnadu (800-900 mm rain). I want do to 36x36 subash palekar method 1 acre as a trial. I have access to enough water to provide water for this 1 acre throughout the year through drip irrigation.
First of all can i substitute coffee with a dwarf variety of papaya ? I wanted to do Coconut, arecanut, gliricidia, papaya(instead of coffee), banana and pepper eventually.
Is there any practical video in english or tamil on doing a 36x36 model from start to end ? I tried finding one all i ended of with are a few scattered videos of whiteboard explanations. nothing practical showing real fields. Found a few videos in Telugu [1 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqFohYjzRUE)] , but nothing in tamil or english.
Is there anyone out there in this forum who has practical experience with this model? Is there a farm in tamilnadu where i can visit to check it out in person?
Looking for a step by step guide on when to plant what. Should all the plants be planted all at the same time or should it be staggered planting?
I want to document this setup process from beginning to end. from putting in the drip line all the way.
