Dear Sir You have three options to utilise the farm with shade as follows: (i) grow colocassia(arabi; a moody crop may not grow well (ii) Grow ginger(difficult to grow crop) (iii) Turmeric(easiest to grow and will give good returns) You can get turmeric roots from us and grow organic turmeric products. Pepper can not be grown since it requires min 70% sunlight. You can get pepper saplings from us if you need.You can also grow yam/sooran which becomes most demanded item during Diwali.

There are many highly priced herbs including many rare and high value tubers and fruits etc.that can be grown under and on Teak, as companion crops, if there is sufficient supply of water - On Teak means climbing vines that bear fruits / flowers / tubers on the vines - there are many such highly priced fruits / flowers / tubers used as remedy for many diseases as per recent research findings.

Pepper plants typically require at least six hours of direct sunlight per day to thrive, so growing them in shaded areas may be challenging. However, there are some pepper varieties that can tolerate partial shade. For other crops, leafy greens, herbs, and certain fruit trees like mango and avocado can tolerate partial shade. It's important to consider the soil quality and pH levels on the teak farm and consult with local agricultural experts for more specific advice on suitable crops. Soyabean Rate Today

Dear Sir,
You have three choices for optimizing the shaded farm space:
  1. Cultivate colocassia (arabi), a somewhat temperamental crop that may not thrive well.
  2. Opt for ginger cultivation, which is challenging but has its merits.
  3. Consider growing turmeric, the easiest option that promises good returns.
We offer high-quality turmeric roots for organic cultivation. Unfortunately, pepper cultivation is not feasible due to its requirement for a minimum of 70% sunlight. However, if needed, we can provide pepper saplings. Another viable option is yam/sooran, a highly sought-after item during Diwali.
Best regards,

Pepper plants generally thrive when exposed to a minimum of six hours of direct sunlight daily, making cultivation in shaded areas a potential challenge. Nevertheless, certain pepper varieties exhibit partial shade tolerance. Other crops such as leafy greens, herbs, and specific fruit trees like mango and avocado also demonstrate an ability to withstand partial shade conditions. When contemplating crop choices for a teak farm, it is crucial to assess soil quality and pH levels. Seeking guidance from local agricultural experts can provide more tailored advice on suitable crops for optimal growth.
