    Hello Experts,

    I need advice about what cultivation / plantation can be done in a black soil land.

    The soil is black and has a clay-like stickiness, water resource is very limited (land located in Ramnad district Tamilnadu) currently i could see only cotton and orid dhall is been done here.

    I would like to understand what are the trees can be grown in this kind of soil.

    Is there any enhancement possible if i put a borewell ?

    Thanks
