Scheme Detail

Name : Income generation through Periphery Plantation (Teak wood)
Key Objective of Scheme:
  • To provide alternate source of livelihood to farmers.
  • To protect boundaries from soil erosion.
  • To provide additional green cover.
About the scheme:

Teak ( Tectona grandis ) is the most valuable hardwood. It can be grown in almost every part of the country except the dry western zone, although the best teak forests develop in well drained deep alluvial soil. Its golden brown lustre, decorative grain and unique properties have made it one of the highly demanded woods in the world. Hence teak plantations have been raised for industrial purposes since long years. This project involves plantation of teak by the farmers in the periphery of his farm land, therefore there will be no disturbance to his main crop. This will give him a source of income as teak is known to be the king of timber as it has better commercial value in the wood market than other commercial trees. 

Target Beneficiary:

At present, three villages i.e.Ghatoli, Gajargota and Soliya have been selected for mission mode implementation with almost covering all farmers of these villages.

Funding: ₹ 1500000
Expected Outcome:

Normally, an irrigated plantation has been assumed to attain a growth in 20 years which is attained by a rained plantation in 25 years. It takes roughly 20-30 years to produce reasonably good quality timber. However, due to large market demand for teak, even the poles and small timber fetch good price. First thinning in 7th / 8th year and second thinning in 13th / 14th year may provide good number of poles and small timber. The estimated average price of good quality timber ranges between  Rs.500 to Rs.1500 per unit.
