I am new to farming, having around 12 acres near Nagpur. I have enough water to irrigate my farm with black and red soil. Can someone please suggest which short term crops like seasonal rabi vegetables I can grow to get good returns? P.S. I am already planning to grow lemon and moringa
Choosing the right crop is extremely important to gain good returns.
We would suggest you to divide your farm into 3 parts.
Grow three different kind of crops as follows -
- Long Term - These are high value, low maintenance and long term crops. Bamboo, oranges. lemon, black pepper, etc.
- Medium Term - Spices like turmeric, ginger, etc or medium term vegetables like Tomato.
- Short Term - pulses, onion, potato, garlic, etc.
Such a distribution will give you operational income from short term crops and high profits from long term crops.
It’s critical to get soil testing done in order to identify the best crops in these categories, suitable for your farm.
