1 malabar neem tree weight after 5 years might be 500 to 700 kg. It is a tall heighted tree and the healthy tree height after 5 years might be around 55 to 60 feet. To check its height you can see the video given in this blog after a project report.

Six feet tall peoples average height is around 75 kg to 80 kg. Ten people of 6 feet height weighs: 10 people x 75 kg = 750 kg. In this way a 60 feet tall tree can easily have around 700 kg weight. Remember tree branches are more heavier than human hard muscles so 5 to 7 year old melia dubia tree weight is expected more then 700 kg as well. 

Malabar neem farming profit per acre

Malabar is a profit making plant that can grow anywhere in any whether and soil and does not require much water and maintenance. By planting 500 trees in 1 acre around Rs Rs17,93,000 can be achieved in malabar cultivation. The malabar neem price per ton is around Rs 5000 to Rs 5500.

It sells according to weight and 1 melia dubia tree weight after 5 to 6 years is around 500 kg. Therefore 500 tree weight will be 500 trees x 500 kg = 250,000 kg i.e. 250 tonns. The price is Rs 5000 per ton. So multiply Rs 5000 x 250 tonn = Rs 12,50,000. After reducing the cost the net profit will be Rs 5,43,000.  

However, there are two such plants that can produce high income returns one is Mahogany tree and another is Melia Dubia.

  • Lets take 500 kg weight.
  • Trees per acre = 500 trees.
  • Yield per acre = 500 trees x 500 kg = 250000 kg (250 tonn).
  • Melia dubia wood price per ton = Rs 5,000 to 5500 let’s take 5k.
  • Rs 5,000 X 250 tonn = Rs 12,50,000.
  • Now reduce your investment.
  • Net Profit = 7 year cost ( Rs707000) - Profit (Rs 12,50,000).
  • Net profit = Rs 5,43,000.

Malabar farming

To start malabar neem farming one should known the details to perform the exercises practically on ground.

Water requirement

Similar to the mahogany tree it also does not need much water. In starting 4 to 5 months you should provide water once in a week and in summers try to water your plant twice. 

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 tree 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 60 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. 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.

  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.
