    Melia seedlings best planted in June-July...seedling about 6'' to 8". Will grow to 3 feet very quickly and thereafter it is difficult to transport
    2nd year thinning can fetch Rs. 75000 ( per acre...match industry can pay even twice the cost per tonne 1000/tonne at farm...delivered at Erode etc. about Rs.1500/tonne... around Rs. 50000 per acre
