We will be planting Areca Nut in this 4 acres land. We have decided to fence this land as this land is very near to lake, Deers enter in to the field often. Fencing area is around 2000 sq ft and cost of the fencing per sq ft is INR 110.

We tried drilling two bore wells, one up to 800 feet and another one up to 600 feet. The water quantity was not sufficient and as it was a rocky surface area experts suggested to go for well. Today we have started digging well in the northern boundary of our newly bought 5 acres farm and hope we will get sufficient water. The well size is 21 feet in east to west and 18 feet from north to south. We are planning to dig up to 60 feet as from our bore well experience we are certain that water table in that area is form 30 feet to 50 feet and after that its full of rocky surface with less or no water potential.

We have decided to plant Areca Nut / Beetle Nut Trees in 4 acres. As per the guidance of KVK Salem, we have bought around 4500 seedling (native Mettupalayam variety) from Karumandurai Horiculture Nursery. We have brought the same to our farm and are kept under 40 by 40 shade net (50% shade) . We are planning to maintain the seedlings for another one year so that we will be able to plant them little deep. Shallow planting of Areaca Nut results in roots being grown above the ground which we need to cover with soil . If we plant at the depth of 2 to 3 feet, roots will be fully buried with in the soil and this also helps in withstanding drought.
