Turmeric Under Mango Tree

Read in the veteran organic farmer Chandran Mash's book that turmeric grows well under mango tree and ginger under jack fruit tree. Also a natural farmer Pappachan from Kannur advised me to try planting ginger using just mulch. Put seeds directly in soil, after cutting the pureria cover crop and then put a handful of dried cowdung above seed and then mulch lightly. When the mulch decomposes again mulch do this couple of times. Trying this using turmeric under mango tree.



Since this is near walking path, cut and clear this area once in a while..
