IRRIGATION & MAINTENANCE OF MALABAR NEEM WOOD
Posted On: 16/07/2020

"Malabar Neem wood", is a tropical deciduous tree. It is a softwood tree that grows best in well-drained, fertile soil with proper moisture. It can be grown in any type of soil, provided with ample irrigation facilities. In Melia Dubia plantation, proper watering is necessary during the initial stages.

Few factors regarding irrigation of Melia Dubia tress during their initial stages are:

  • 2 inches bore-water with the help of flood irrigation can cultivate up to 5 acres of Melia Dubia plantation.
  • 2 inches bore-water with the help of drip irrigation can cultivate up to 10 acres of Melia Dubia plantation.
  • Black soil, being a bit loamier has more water retention power than the red soil, so 10-20 liters of water can be used in 7 days to irrigate a land with black soil during the 1st year.
  • In red soil, 10-20 liters of water can be used in 3-4 days during the 1st year.
  • In black soil, 50 liters of water should be used in 7 days during the 2nd year.
  • In red soils, 50 liters of water should be used in 3 days during the 2nd year.

Few factors regarding the irrigation of Melia Dubia trees are:

  • If you are planning to harvest Melia Dubia in the 2nd year itself, then stop watering the trees in any kind of soil, especially during the winter season till the time you harvest and let the trees harden.
  • 80 liters to 100 liters of water are required for watering the trees in any kind of soil from the 3rd year till the 5th year during the summer season.
  • During the rainy season, try to prevent the rainwater from stagnating around the seedlings. Water-logging is harmful to the growth of Melia Dubia tree.
  • Trees respond well to irrigation, 4-5 days in the red soil, and 7-10 days in the black soil during the non-rainy season.
  • Don’t water the trees in the 7th year and the 8th year. Leave the trees for hardening.
