Melia dubia tree holds promise of good returns for a framers & empty land owners.

Low income  

Diminishing income from an acre against increasing land value, forces many farmers to sell their lands. A family of 4 members needs a monthly income of Rs.40, 000 from an acre if they have to survive. But today from an acre one gets anything between Rs.10, 000 to Rs.12, 000. “How is this enough? Naturally he prefers to sell his lands than continue farming. If we are keen that farming lands should not be sold then we must ensure income generation of at least Rs.20, 000 to Rs.30, 000 from an acre a year.

Easy method  

The easiest way to increase income from one acre is by planting certain tree varieties such as melia dubia (Kadu bevu in Kannada) which fetch a handsome price in the market. Assured buyback and require low maintenance expenditure. In addition the trees also aid the planet by preventing temperature rise and checking gas emission into the atmosphere as the trees are naturally endowed to absorb maximum Co2.

Money spinner  

Melia is a money spinning tree of short duration. Even if planted as a single row along the field bunds, about 60 trees can be planted per acre, which will fetch an income of about Rs. 1 lakhs in the eight year of planting. “Since there is a total mismatch between demand and supply for wood and veneer, block planting of 300 to 350 trees per care can ensure a minimum profit of rupees one lakh per year from an acre. Under good maintenance and controlled irrigation from sixth year onwards, depending on the soil depth and quality trees of 80 to 100cm gbh with a clear bole of 5 metres height can fetch Rs.4,000 at today’s price (7 per cent escalation can be added per year for the sale price). Intercultivation can be done with annual crops in the first three years and then spices such as pepper can be grow.

Single row planting  

Even if planted in a single row along the field bunds, about 60 trees can be planted at six feet spacing which will fetch an income of about Rs.2 lakhs in the seventh year. Under high density planting with 1,000 to 1,500 trees in an acre, a yield of 40 to 50 tones is possible from the second and third year of planting. “As the demand for Melia wood is quite high, minimum profit of about Rs.40, 000 per year from an acre can be ensured for the farmers today,” says, Mr.N.Thirupillappa.

Pest infestations  

Regarding pest infestations affecting this tree Mr. N Thirupillappa Reddy says, “The variety is susceptible to root rot. Only optimum irrigation is required. While planting the seedlings, application of 2-3 kgs of vermicompost and second option farm yard manure is prepared basically using cow dung and cow uring may applied.
