Hi Farming community,

I’m looking for feedback about the dwarf arecanut variety Inter Se Mangala for plantation in about 5 acres. Will it be suitable in tamilnadu? We have enough water but want your advice. How is the yield? and total life of the tree? I’m not seeing much information about this variety in internet too.

Since we will have labor problems in future for tall varieties, i have decided to choose dwarf variety. No other reasons.

Kindly give your advice on which variety to choose ? I’m in Tirupur district, Tamilnadu
