SHADE GROWING OF VANILLA
In India Most of the intercrop vanilla is either under Areca trees or under coconut groves... We have done under Mango, mangium, rubber and coffee-tea plantations also.
There have been case studies of total Glyricidia and Erythrina intrecrop cultivation also. We provide here snapshots of all such cultivation and each case has thereown merits and demerits.
We advise growers to discuss with us before proceeding to take up a situation which resembles their culitvation habitat.
organic mulch has been employed in these 2 feet wide beds. Normally mixing vermi compost - green composted manure to the mulch helps in root growth. Psudomonas and Tricoderma are incorporated alongwith the mulch material which is around 1 ft high. Inbetween rows 1-1.5 m walking space is provided.
Typically an area of 1acre -4000 sq.m of vanilla plantation can hold around 2000 production vines.
