Weight of Malabar neem tree

Malabar tree grows mature in 7 to 8 years and its weight in 7 years grows up to 10 to 15 quintals per tree accordingly. 

  • 1 quintal = 100 kg.
  • 10 quintal = 1000 kg.
  • 1 ton =  10 quintal.
  • 1 ton = 1000 kg.

Malabar neem cost per acre

  • Melia dubia plant price =  Rs 15 – Rs 20.
  • Plants per acre = 1250 to 1300 plants.
  • Let's take 1000 plants per acre.
  • If purchase in bulks then you can get it at the price of Rs 10 per plant.
  • Rs 10 X 1000 plants = Rs 10,000 is plants cost.

Melia dubia farming profit per acre

let’s calculate the profits.

  • Melia dubia price per ton = Rs 5,000.
  • After 7-8 years 1 melia dubia tree weight = 10 to 15 quintal.
  • 10 quintal = 1 ton.

  • Farming profit – Cost per acre = Net Profit.

Lets include all 7 year cost.

Profit after 7 years = total cost X 7 years.

Rs106000 X 7 years = Rs 742,000.

melia dubia tree
  • After sandalwood tree and mahogany tree melia dubia farming profit is dragging the attention of most people due to less growing time than sandalwood, mahogany tree and more profit than teakwood and poplar trees.

Water requirement

One of the main reasons I have selected this plant is similar to mahogany tree it also does not need much water. But you should give water in starting phase of the plant, in starting 4 to 5 months you should provide water once in a week and in summers try to water your plant twice. Moreover, after 6 months you can water it only once in a month that’s it the plant demands. Malabar neem is such plant that can easily grow in the circumstances of Rajasthan as well. 

Soil requirements 

Melia dubia easily grows in variety of soils it prefers deep fertile and sandy loam soil.


I recommend one can plant it through seeds and cuttings. You can choose plant cutting for quick growth, this plant grows up to 4.5 to 5 foot in just five months and after 1 year it will increase by 10 to 15 foot taller but the diameter of the tree needs more time to spread. After 7-8 years the tree will grow up to 40 to 50 feet taller and the diameter will also develop in this long period.

Mixed cropping example

Mixed farming is necessary while choosing such crops or plants that takes more than 1-2 years mixed cropping gives farmers opportunity to maintain their economy. Melia dubia takes more than 7 years to grow completely mature therefore before starting melia dubia cultivation you can try mixed farming concept.

In mixed cropping one can cultivate 2-3 crops in the same field so you should try mixed cropping. Some of the mixed farming crop examples are potato or turnips, legumes like peas, beans etc. With melia dubia tree you can try various vegetables like cabbage, brinjal, cauliflower, tomatoes, gourd, bitter gourd, ivy gourd, turmeric etc. Select this tree in mix cropping because it hardly needs water so your other crops will be healthier.

Malabar neem buyers in India

To sell melia dubia wood you can target various industries like paper industry, match box industry and ply manufacturers etc. The wood has great demand in these industries apart from that you can try to sell the wood online. 

Malabar neem wood uses

The specialty of the tree is it contains bitterness like neem tree hence it is totally free of termite attack moreover its leaves are good source of organic compost. Melia dubia wood uses in various sectors including match box, packing box, ply, paper etc.

Conclusion - No matters whether you are living in Uttarakhand or Karnataka if you are looking for a particular crop that can grow in your region with less care and less water then you must give this tree a chance. Although before this I have told many other crops that provides more profit with less investment and minimum maintenance some of them are mentioned below under read more section.

  1. How to plant 1250 plants per acre with 10 X 10 distance..

  2. Is it posible to plant 1000 seedlings in a acre of land. It will become compact and plants can’t grow to the full extent. There should be more space between each row . Expected plantation limit should be hardly 250 to 300 plants. Return of profits is hardly 25 to 30 lakhs.
    Thank you.
