I want to get in to farming as an alternative income. I have a 5 acres of red soil land with water in Andhra pradesh, Prakasam district. I can invest upto 25 Lacs on this farm land. Based on my knowledge Dragon fruit seems more profitable with less manpower requirement. Need expert advise...

At present well to do people are eating the dragon fruits. The fruits are being served on the occasion of marriages only. Farmers in AP are initially planning to take up dragon fruit cultivation. Now dragon fruit is fetching premium prices and at present the fruits are being imported from other countries. By the time we get crop in AP the rates will fall and all sections of the society will consume the fruits.

It is a new crop to us but it will survive under tropical/sub-tropical conditions) and yield fruits . To safe guard the income levels please go for combination of other fruit crops such as custard apple, date palm etc to avoid any losses due to unforeseen factors.
