In our farm currently we have palm oil trees as a mono crop. We did this before I became familiar with inter cropping. I am trying to figure out whether plants can be inter cropped in the current farm and would like to get your inputs.
Palm trees have just entered fourth year
Trunks haven’t grown yet
Row to row and plant to plant spacing is 23 feet
All trees are drip irrigated
Land is Red soil
What plants, trees can be grown that are remunerative, would not impede the growth and compete with the palm oil trees?
Since labour is an issue, I would like to grow plants that might require less labour
Can we plant drumstick?
Since we have drip set up for the existing plants how do we plan for irrigating any new plants that we might plant?
