Tamarind not yielding after 15 years - Please advice

Dear All,

We have a farm near Palani in Tamil Nadu, where my father cultivated mango & tamarind long back.

Though we dont have issues with the mango trees which are yielding good, we seem to be at crossroads with respect to tamarind.

We have around 2000 tamarind trees that are almost 15 years old which still havent yield.

When enquired, locals and even few experts told that average is around 10 years.Few recommended pruning & we did the same last year on sample, but still no desirable results.

I wonder why my 15 year plants have not yield.

Request experts here to shed some light on this.

Regards,

Saravana Kumar

Nothing is available in the net related to this problem.  I suggest you to contact somebody in the Horticulture Dept.

Try burning dry leaves below the Tamarind Tree as a “Trial & Error” method and update the outcome.  Please do this before the fruit setting season.

Note: Fruit harvest season is Jan-Apr.

Thank you sir for the suggestion. Would try and keep you posted on results.

And yes I have already contacted Horti Dept & discussed with few in TNAU. They suspect grafting issue.

Suggestions given were pruning, deweeding root area etc but didnt work out.
