Taro with minimum effort

I like any farming activity with minimum effort which can give reasonable output. Normally small taros are planted by making raised bed, using cowdung and mulch. I have enough taro seeds this time, but making raised bed is too tiresome, so thought of making a small pit and applying cowdung and leaves. I did around 20 planting pits near my farm house, sunlight may be a problem here, may have to cut some glyricedia to provide more sunlight. I just put some sunhemp seeds in this pits and sprinkled some soil above that. With the start of June, I will plant the taro.

It is a normal practice to plant taro in this way. The concern is if the soil around is not really loose the yield will be very low. So you need to dig the pit big enough and fill it with as much mulch as possible and loose soil.

Thanks Subith, may be next time, soil will be more loose and I may not have to dig it to this extend.
