    Default plants very suitable for waste land

    Dear Member,

    Congratulations for your interest into Agro Business, really a business which has lot of potential.I Harjeet Singh is an Agro Consultant having a huge knowledge and experience over a decade.As a consultant i want to suggest you that apart from whatever you are cultivating or want to cultivate in your land spare a few acres of land for Plantation of Teak Wood Trees which will give you a solid, safe and guaranteed huge income.This you can take as a long term investment with very very big returns
    a brief project profile
    In India the demand for wood for purposes such as firewood ,pulp and timber is increasing enormously due to the fast growing population. The existing natural forests are shrinking at the rate of 2 million hectares per year, due to tree felling and using the land for agriculture, mining and other developmental activities. To save this situation according to Food & Agricultural Organisation (F.A.O.) and the world Bank the next decade will be of fast growing trees. The gap between demand and supply of forest products is widening day by day. To overcome this problem and to bridge the gap of forest products , we have taken the initiative of introducing MANGIUM - one of the nature's truly exotic and wondrous tree species, for reforestation along with intensive management of natural forests.

    MANGIUM is natures only spectacular creations in the plant kingdom, better known as Australian Teak: it grows better in humid tropical climatic conditions. It can adapt itself to any type of soil and climate. Even under poor conditions MANGIUM tree outgrows all other trees and it can tolerate acidic soil of low fertility as well.

    According to the researches conducted by the Australian Center for International Agriculture Research (A.C.I.A.R.) of Australia, MANGIUM trees will reach to a height of 100 ft. (30 mts.) with a stem diameter of 2 ft. (60 cmc. ) in 12 years time.

    MANGIUM grows fastest in conditions where the mean annual rainfall is between 1500-2500 millimeter and temp. between 20-40 C.

    MANGIUM trees can be cut between 5-6 years of their growth for interim income.

    MANGIUM is a leguminous species. It absorbs Nitrogen from the atmosphere and fixes the soil through its root nodules. Thus it increases the fertility of the soil and also controls pollution.

    A single acre of land accommodates about 1500/2000 plants with spacing of 4'' - 6'' or 5'' - 6'' between each plant and row and pit size to be not less than 11/2' x 11/2' x 11/2' deep. since the tree grows straight and tall a single tree yields upto 40 cft. of wood. The trees can also be planted as a wind breaker and fire-retardent along the perimeters of the farm. Your investment is wise and 100% safe, because you are investing and planting on your land.

    MANGIUM plantations in India are mainly concentrated in West Bengal, Maharashtra, Goa, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Pondicherry and some parts of Gujarat.


    FEATURES OF MANGIUM

    One of the Fastest growing Teak tree in the world.

    » Grows from Ten feet to Twelve feet in just one year. Grows to a height of Fifty to Sixty feet in the Sixth year.

    Grows even in arid soil and adverse climatic conditions.

    » Is a Nitrogen fixing plant, fertilizes the soil, prevents soil erosion and used as wind breaker on peripheries.

    Is good for multicrops like Pepper and Beetle leaf, in the second year. Pepper creepers can be planted at the end of two years

    » Is useful for Furniture and Cabinet making and also for industrial and construction purposes.

    Is used for particle board manufacturing- used for best quality pulp for manufacturing Kraft paper.

    » Grows well even without water if planted during the monsoon ( June & July ) only, and minimum maintenance. In case you have enough water on your land then plantation can be done any time of the year

    Two thousand plants can be planted in one acre at a distance of 5 feet each. First lot of one thousand plants are to be cut in the Sixth year. In case plantation is for more than one acre then the quantity per acre will reduce depending on the area to be covered

    » No Government restriction for cutting MANGIUM trees. Local Talathi to informed after plantation.






    PLANTATIONS
    Expected returns from plantations at the end of 5 years
    BY WAY OF SELLING 800 TREES ( 200 trees considered not grown properly, died, stolen, destroyed etc. )

    Cutting alternate trees at the end of 5th year
    Trees sold at Rs. 2000 - 16.00 lacs - for 800 trees

    For interim and final cutting, only 800 trees are considered as sold instead of 1000 per acre. A five year Old tree is expected to give more than six cu.ft. of wood. Considering today's rate of Rs. 500/- cu.ft. In kerala, each tree should fetch not less than Rs. 3000/- after five years.

    End of 10 years
    BY WAY OF CUTTING 800 TREES
    ( 200 trees considered not grown properly, died, stolen, destroyed ect. )
    TOTAL CUTTING AT THE END OF 10 YEAR

    20 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 300/-per cu.ft=Rs 6000 x 800 trees. - 48.00 Lacs
    20 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 400/-per cu.ft=Rs 8000 x 800 trees. - 64.00 Lacs
    30 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 300/-per cu.ft=Rs 9000 x 800 trees. - 72.00 Lacs
    30 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 400/-per cu.ft=Rs 12000 x 800 trees. - 96.00 Lacs
    40 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 300/-per cu.ft=Rs 12000 x 800 trees - 96.00 Lacs
    40 cu.ft. per tree x Rs. 400/-per cu.ft=Rs 16000 x 800 trees - 128.00 Lacs

    Expected yield from a 12 year old MANGIUM tree is more than 60 cu.ft. of wood. For calculation purpose, it is taken as 20, 30 and 40 cu.ft.
    After 10 years, at the time of final cutting, the rate of MANGIUM wood is expected to be well above Rs. 1000 per cu.ft. For safer calculation, it is taken as Rs. 300/400 per cu.ft.Mangium Plantation of 100 acres can be done in stages of 25 acres a year for 4 years.
    For any query mail at teakplant at the rate gmail dot com or dail zero nine nine one seven six three nine four two two.
    Additional Income from 4th Year.

    Additional Income can be obtained from 4th year by planting pepper vines on alternate Magnium trees.
    Minimum rate of Rs.100 per Kg. is taken, even though it is as high as Rs. 300/kg.
    Calculations are made for income from 1 acre land & output is taken from 400 trees every year from 1 acre of land.


    Year Output / tree in Kgs. Total output From 400 trees in Kgs. Income in Rs. Per year
    1. 2. 3. =2X400 4.= 3X100
    4th year 0.2 80 8,000

    Dear Harjeet,

    I heard that Mangium is not suitable in AndhraPradesh. Is it true?. I infact I was very much interested to plant Mangium, but after thorough reading in internet, and after consulted few experienced farmers, concluded that Mangium is not much suitable in AP. Can you pls let me know if it is really suitable?.

    Default Role of the Forest Department

    In 1978, the farm obtained free seedlings, primarily for Eucalyptus and subaval (Leucaena leucocephala), from the Forest Department nursery In Sihor. Later, in 1984, slower-growing species of forest trees such as teak and neem (Azadirachta indica) were acquired to obtain more valuable timber. In both enterprises the farm was given technical help by the Forest Department. Although Patel was initially helped and encouraged by foresters, he ís now seen to be in a position to give them advice regarding his techniques of planting and maintaining both fast- and slow-growing species of forest trees.

    Default eucalyptus and teak plantation

    [FONT="Arial Black"][COLOR="Blue"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"]TEAK & SAFEDA PLANTATION
    SAGWAN FARMING
    We integrate teak and safeda plantation in india .we have more then 50,000 farmers across india . we r private lmited companey based in mumbai exporter of teak & safeda wood , wood timbers and timber wood products like timber boards, timber logs, board ply products, wooden margins and wooden laminated floorings we integrate farming of teak & safeda with buy back gurantee on stamp paper of 100 rs with registration from high court of mumbai with current market rate of wood .
    We integrate EUCALYPTUS & TEAK tissue culture farming give cd. and booklet with registration cirtificate and form to cut your tree .we also provide traning to get maximum interest in farming and get to start your own bussiness in ur state .we give regular visit to your farm after plantation to know the technical problems which can be short out by us only . We appoint frenchisee in each district and B.D.M. of state for bussiness devolopment , if interested plz call us for such query
    Teak plantation:
    COST OF ONE PLANT IS 70 RS.
    Come and invest Rs.70 for one plants and earn more then. that is approx 500 plant in one acre .Rs.2000 per cub/feet x 15 cubic feet from one tree =R.S. 30,000 from one tree in 7 - 9 yrs.
    R.S. 30,000 x 500 plant in onc acre = 150,00000/-
    1 crore fifty lakhs

    Safeda (eucalyptus) plantation:
    COST OF ONE PLANT IS 26 RS.
    By platinting Eugliptus Clonel you will get wood nearly 100 to 150 kgs per tree.
    Per acre you need minimum 1400 to 1800 clones approximately.
    We give rough calculation here i.e per acre 1500 plants .On completion of 4 th years you will get 100 Kgs per tree .So the total yield per acre is 1500 X 100= 150000 kgs i.e 150 matric tons per acre .The present market rate is Rs 5000 to 6000 matric ton. So the farmers will get per acre
    150 matric ton X R.S 6000=9,00000
    nine lakhs
    To know our project detail of Teak tissue culture & safeda (eucalyptus) farming at your doorstep in your land visit our site .

    Terms and conditions :
    Availability of plants in company's green house is invariably in short supply. Pricing of planting stock is declared in advance to ensure that the farmers can book their plants any time during the year. Many a times, all plants in our nursery stock stand booked much earlier that their final lifting. We therefore encourage farmers to book plants in advance to ensure their availability. We always maintain transparency in supplying plants on first cum first serves bases and on terms and conditions as mentioned on the receipt.

    DETAIL REGARDING TEAK PLANTATION
    Teak can be planted at 2m x 2m, 2.5m x 2.5m or 3m x 3m espacement. It can also be raised along with agricultural crops at a spacing of 4m x 4m or 5m x 1m.
    • Plough lands thoroughly and level it of. Mark the areas for pit digging by alignment and staking.
    • Dig pits of 35 x 35 x 35 cm sizes. Refill the soil after seasoning and mixing with Farm Yard Manure and insecticides. On poor gravely sites, replace the pit soil by good soil.
    • Use pre sprouted stumps for planting.
    • Best planting season is from feb – sep or in rainy season.
    • Firm up the soil after planting and apply irrigation wherever necessary.
    • Apply 50 g of fertiliser in pit at the time of planting and thereafter in split doses or as per the fertility status of soil.
    • Carry out weeding operations regularly. Weeding may be carried out @ 3 operations in the first year, 2 operations in second year and one operation in the third year.
    • Carry out soil working periodically for better growth of plants. One working in the Ist year and two workings in 2nd and 3rd year may be adequate.
    • Debudding in the initial years may be done to improve the quality of timber.
    • Undertake prophylactic and control measures for protection of plants from insects/pests and diseases to ensure good health of the crop.
    Irrigation:
    Study has revealed that, irrigation during stress period boosts the growth of the plants. Irrigation should be followed by weeding (3,2,1) and adequate soil working. Two doses of fertiliser (in the month of August & September) @ 50 gm per plant of NPK (15:15:15) may be provided every year upto two years. By increasing the inputs of irrigation and frequent thinning, it is possible to increase the rate of diameter growth. The increase in diameter growth is, however, dependent on increasing the size of the crown i.e.. decrease in the number of trees per acre. In other words, one can have either lesser no. of trees of higher girth or larger number of trees of lower girth. It has been observed that teak trees grown under irrigated condition grew faster but the sapwood content of trees increased, the wood became weak and wind damage became quite serious. A phenomenon of water blisters may also develop in teak trees grown under irrigated conditions.
    Many people claim that, teak grown with fertiliser and irrigation give excellent result. Drip irrigation will induce surface roots and epicormic branching. Nitrogen fertilisers will increase the nitrogen content of leaves. Initially larger leaves will increase photosynthesis and faster growth.
    Harvesting, yield
    The highest growth under plantation condition in India was seen in the Indo-Gangetic belt of Haldwani Division
    Insects, Pest and Diseases :
    Teak defoliator & skeletoniser (Hyblaea puera and Eutectona machaeralis) cause extensive damage to young plantations. Root rot due to Polyporous zonalis is also common in plantation. Pink disease fungus causes cankers and bark flaking. Powdery mildew caused by Olivea tectonae & Uncinula tectonae leads to premature defoliation. It is thus necessary to undertake prophylactic and control measures to ensure good health of the crops. This method is of immense importance in the insect, pest control considering its harmless and pollution free implications on the environment further avoiding the operational and residual hazards that involve in the use of organic and inorganic insecticides
    Irrigation:
    irrigation during stress period boosts the growth of the plants. Irrigation should be followed by weeding (3,2,1) and adequate soil working. Two doses of fertiliser (in the month of August & September) @ 50 gm per plant of NPK (15:15:15) may be provided every year upto three years. By increasing the inputs of irrigation and frequent thinning, it is possible to increase the rate of diameter growth. The increase in diameter growth is, however, dependent on increasing the size of the crown i.e.. decrease in the number of trees per acre. In other words, one can have either lesser no. of trees of higher girth or larger number of trees of lower girth. It has been observed that teak trees grown under irrigated condition grew faster. A phenomenon of water blisters may also develop in teak trees grown under irrigated conditions. Such trees may appear quite healthy from outside but the inner heartwood may develop rot due to storage of excess water that increases the spread of fungi which may further damage the tree.
    Many people claim that, teak grown with fertiliser and irrigation give excellent result. Drip irrigation will induce surface roots and epicormic branching. Nitrogen fertilisers will increase the nitrogen content of leaves.. The control through insecticides is not, therefore, possible. Once the trees are established they generally donot respond significantly to irrigation and fertilisers.
