Amla Farming (Amla Ki kheti) can help farmers to multiple their incomes and improve their Standard of living. Currently Most of the farmers are in to traditional farming growing wheat, rice, maize etc due to which they are not able to earn enough to sustain their family.

Currently Farmers are earning 50000 -100000 per acre but amla farming (amla ki kheti) can help them to earn 5-10 Lac rupees per acre. Initially for 2-3 years when plants are small farmers can do inter cropping and earn additional income. 

Kisan Buggy supports farmers to achieve their dreams of multiplying their income. Average land holding is decreasing day by day so it is a high time for farmers to adopt amla farming ( amla ki kheti).         

Income from Amla

Plants Per Acre = 240

Yield Per plant = 100Kg

Price for 1 Kg = Rs 40

Income per plant = 40*100 =4000

Income per acre = 4000*240 = 9.4 Lakh 

Investment For 1 Acre :-

Spacing- 12*15 ft

Number of plants per acre – 240+60 (For replacement) =300

Price of 1 Plant = Rs 170 ( Including Transportation of plants Till Farms + Supervisor For Plantation day + Technical assistance regarding usages of Fertilizer, Pesticide and irrigation schedule)

Total Investment for the plantation of 1 Acre = 170*300 =51000

Amla or the Indian gooseberry is also known by many names such as Aonla, Amlaki, Emblica, etc. Botanically Amla is referred to as Phyllanthus Emblica and is deciduous in nature. In India, this plant is considered both medicinal and sacred. This edible fruit is exclusively popular in the East and is used in Ayurveda for the preparation of medicines. This plant is grown in the Indian Sub-continent, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Srilanka, Costa Rica, and Reunion Island.

In India, the Amla tree is cultivated in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Tamil Nadu. The total area under Amla production is about 50,000 hectares with an annual production of about 2 lakh tonnes of fruit.

Land preparation and planting in Amla Farming

The land is properly ploughed, harrowed, levelled and cleaned before planting the seeds or grafts. Pits of dimensions 50-100 cm³ are created a few weeks before planting. Dug soil is mixed with 20 kg of FYM, 1 kg of neem cake, 500 g of bone meal, 1 kg of single super phosphate and 100 g of 10% of BHC. This mixture is filled into the pits and watered after transplanting the grafts. The recommended planting density is 156-494 plants per hectare. The inter and intra row spacing is maintained from 4 to 8 m. The square and rectangular planting methods use the following spacing recommendations: 4.5 x 4.5 m, 6 x 6 m, 7 x 7 m, 8 x 8 m or 8 x 4 m.

Manure and fertilizer requirement

For obtaining high yield, application of manure and fertilizer is essential. The recommended manure and fertilizer dose for a 1-year-old Amla plant is 10 kg of FYM, 100 g of N, 50 g of P and 75 g of K. The requirement of these fertilizers may vary depending on the age of the plant. The need of manure and fertilizer for a 10 to 12 years old plant is estimated to be 0.5 to 1.5 kg of N, 0.25 -1 kg of P and 0.375 -0.8 kg of K. These plants also need 50 kg of FYM and 5 kg of press-mud each year. The fertilizers are applied to the plants in two half doses: one before flowering and the other after fruit set.

If in case there is boron deficiency, 0.6% borax is sprayed over the plants to prevent fruit necrosis. To improve plant growth and proper fruit development, nitrogen, potassium, calcium, zinc, copper and calcium nitrate are sprayed over the plants.

Irrigation requirements of Amla trees

This plant is tolerant of drought. The farm area during cultivation of Amla is mulched with pruned branches, organic materials or with a black polythene sheet in very dry and arid regions so as to conserve moisture and increase production. Generally, in water scarce areas, pitcher watering is practiced. Plants are watered immediately after transplanting and regularly at an interval of 10 to 15 days during summer. During fruit establishment, the trees are watered at an interval of 15 to 20 days during summer. The plants are not irrigated during the flowering period. It is estimated that each Amla plant requires around 10 l of water during 1-2 years of age, 15 l of water during 3-5 years of age and 20-30 l of water after 6 years of age approximately. Drip irrigation is considered the best source of irrigation for Amla orchards.
