Dear Farmer Tejal,
welcome to our Farmnest Forum.
Appreciate for your interest in Farming.
I suggest you to give details like your Land location, weather, soil texture, ( if possible better soil and water reports ), Water source, & quality etc, so that our members will advise you.
In general, select a Main crop, add some shade loving plants, some differant trees/shrubs, as per suitability.
Wish you all the best’
As rightly pointed out by Rao garu, please decide on your main crop. Also pay attention to the amount of sunlight available and the existing tree density in your farm. With abundant sunlight, fruit trees do not attain their usual height and spread - predominantly due to no need for competition for sunlight.
