Cultivation Techniques for Melia dubia (malabar neem)

Site elements

The trees develop well in sandy topsoil, red and lateritic soils with a yearly precipitation of 800 mm or more.

Seed accumulation, preparing and Nursery procedures

Seed preparing and pretreatments: Reports state extremely poor germination in Melia. Learns at IFGTB uncover germination as high as 60 for every penny with no pretreatments. The drupes ought to be evaluated in water to uproot gliding seeds preceding sowing.

    what is the seed treatment process for malabar neem?

  • #2
    Seeds are assembled from matured tree developed nourishments (Jan – Feb) by rubbing, washing and

    drying and are secured in altered tins. The germinability of the seed is not precisely

    25%. In nursery, the seeds are sown in raised nursery bunks. The best seed

    treatment is treating the seeds with cowdung answer for one day. By then the

    treated seeds are sown over the raised nursery bunk. It takes one or two

    months for the seeds to grow. Watering framework should be done routinely. The

    seedling takes 6 months to complete its nursery stage

      MELIA DUBIA | Malabar Neem Plants

      Synonym: Melia composita willd. Family: Miliaceae.

      Marathi: Kuriaput Gujarati: kadukajar Oriya: Batra Nepali: Lapsi Khasi: Dieng-Ja-Rasang kannada: Hebbevu Tel: Munnattikaraka Tamil: Maali vembu TRADE: Malbar Nim wood

      Malabar Neem Farming: Malabar Neem has the unique feature of growing to 40 feet within 2 years from planting and can be mechanically pruned and harvested.

      Malabar Neem originates from the Meliaceae family and is an indigenous species of tree to India, South East Asia and Australia, where it has been cultivated as a source of firewood.

      The tree can be cultivated in all types of soil and requiring a low supply of water. Malabar Neem has the unique feature of growing to 40 feet within 2 years from planting and can be mechanically pruned and harvested. Malabar Neem is specie belonging to the Neem family. This tree is known for its fast growth. In recent times the farmers around Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh; Kerala have found the utility of this tree both as a low grade timber and also a very useful wood for ply wood industry. Under irrigated conditions this tree can be harvested at the end of 5th year for both timber and ply wood purpose.

      The rooted saplings are planted onset of the monsoon or during the monsoon.

      The suggested pit size is 18" x 18"X18" cube
      Espacement of 6’x 6’ is recommended. This will give better girth in shorter duration.

      The growth is rapid. GAMBLES’s specimens gave 8 – 12 rings/dm of radius (mean annual girth increment 5.3 – 8 cm) for a Tamil Nadu specimen, and 28 rings/dm (mean annual girth increment 2.3 cm) for a specimen from Bengal. North Kanara in Karnataka specimen showed 12-16 rings/dm of radius (TALBOT, 1909) giving a mean annual girth increment of 4 –5.3 cm. Trees grown in the Calcutta Botanical gardens from specimen from Malbar origin are said to have reached in 7 years an average height of 14m and a girth of 112 cm at breast height. This rate of growth is equivalent to 4-rings/ dm of radius. Even in comparatively dry regions with a rainfall of 750 – 1000 mm, a height of 3 – 4.5 m is obtained in plantations, against 6-7.5 m in more favourable locations.

      Seasoning and Preservation behavior
      The timber seasons well if the logs are converted in a green state, though if left long in the log, it is liable to develop end splitting and decoration. Like many other meliaceous timbers, it contracts very considerably across the grain while drying out. The best method of dealing with the timber is to convert the logs as soon after falling as possible and to open stack the sawn material, preferably undercover to avoid grey stain.

      Present day uses
      The wood is used for packing cases, cigar boxes, ceiling planks, building purposes, agricultural implements, pencils, math boxes, splints and catamarans. In Srilanka, it is employed for outriggers of boats. It is suitable for musical instruments, tea boxes and the most importantly in making plywood, as the wood is anti-termite by itself.

      The Income Details are as follows:
      The Plantation distance (recommended) to be 10 Feet 453-460 Plants can Accommodated in an Acre depending on the soil Fertility and Irrigation.

      Inter-crops can be grown with larger distances between plants.
      One Tree Fetches 0.75 Ton to 1.20 Tons.

      Taking Average level ONE Ton X Rs 2700/Per Ton as per the present Price can fetch an Income of Rs.2,700 (in 5 -6 Years) = Rs.2,700 X 460 Trees/Acre = Rs.12,42,000/

      (Even on worst Conditions) it will fetch a minimum Income of Rs.10 Lakhs (In Worst Conditions as per the Present Price.)The Price Timber will be a Minimum of Doubled after FIVE Years. Then you can assess the Income for 5-6 Years.

      If one Keeps for 10 Years, it will have Timber Value like Teak. Then the yield will be >2.50 Tons / Tree and then the Price per Ton will also be More. As per our estimation it will be Rs.25 Lakhs to Rs.30 Lakhs/Acre as per the Present Timber Prices.

      Melia Dubia | Malabar Neem in News:Read below headlines

      The programme has taken off with Ambiply Panels and Doors inking an agreement with the research institute for training farmers to grow Melia dubia, a fast growing tree species that has been gaining importance in recent years in Tamil Nadu.Research personnel at the College say that after conducting field trails for over a decade, they have released two high yielding varieties– TNAU Melia MTP 1 and TNAU Melia MTP 2 – which were found suitable for making of quality plywood.“These incidentally, are also the most sought after species by the plywood industry. Having witnessed the potential of Melia dubia as a raw material for the plywood industry, Ambiply Panels and Doors approached us to promote and support plantations in farm holdings. Hence a consortia-based contract plywood farming model was conceived and designed for implementation in Tamil Nadu,” they said.This model will ensure buyback and assured price supportive mechanism for the growers. This will also create sustained supply of quality raw material to the plywood industry throughout the year.On the environmental front, the cultivation of Melia dubia tree will help reduce the atmospheric carbon-dioxide levels through carbon sequestration. This tree accumulates a biomass of 300 tonnes/hectares in six years, and removes 150 tonnes of atmospheric carbon-dioxide through sequestration. These consortia mode tree cultivation will help to protect the reserve forests of India, by reducing the pressure on them for supply of raw material, say Forest College experts.The tree grows in all kinds of soil and the wood fetches a minimum of Rs. 7,500/tonne once it reaches a girth of 20 inches. The farmer will be able to get Rs. 6-8 lakh from an acre within six years, a source said. Source: Contract farming in plywood takes root at farm varsity’s lead

      The clones of Melia dubia evolved by me have been found to be admirably suitable for match splits and plywood veneer. The current demand is around 20 lakh tonnes per year and this could only be met by replicating our model all over the State. Therefore, by cultivation of these two, one lakh rupees per acre per year can be ensured for the farmers,” says Dr. Kumaravelu.

        Malabar Neem Clones are the easiest way to generate good income for the farmers or tree growers in their vacant lands, along with periphery of their agriculture lands, open plots. In 6-7years time, they will get at least Rs.4000/- per tree as additional income. Clones are disease free, mother plants are outcome of long R&D and these can be stabilized in most of the soils easily. If anybody wants to grow them in coastal areas, they have to plant them along with Casuarina Plants to protect from strong winds.
