We will be in hold of about 7 acres of land in AP 30 kms from Chittor.
While we are exited about getting back to nature & farming one of the biggest questions pondering us is weather we should till the land or not since its not used for over 15-20 years. Land has not been under cultivation over years making the soil hard in some ares & there are certain parts of the land where it is always damp due to water seepage from a neighboring lake.
We want to first fence the land & then plan for Long term, medium term & short term crops.
We are thinking of Teak & Red sanders. Areca is also on high priority for us.
Fruit orchard with mix of mange, chickoo & pomegranate. Medium term we want to try Banana.
Set aside a small portion for Green house or shade net.
Vegetables for short term.
We want to stick to natural farming without doubt irrespective of the yield & to support the same we will add local breed cows.
The foremost question for us now is should we till the land or not given the above facts.
Can you please help me take the right decisions.
