So I recently acquired 5 acres of land in Mathura. Instead of just leaving it there I wanted to cultivate some kinda crop which require little maintenance, just to get something back. I have the intention of visiting once a month when this happens, except for when crops need to be picked/collected. Any suggestions on what kinda crop to plant. Bear in mind that it's not the entire 5 acres I'll plant but just some spots which may add up to 1 acre. Thanks

Chadon beni doesn't need any setta fertilizer to grow big, just need a soil that drains water well and is easily aerated but said soil MUST be kept moist. What I do is use a 3:2:1 mix of potting soil, sharp sand and rabbit manure. Getting very good results.

Also, it's a plant that doesn't like too much heat, best kept in a area where it can get some shade or where there's good air flow.

Yeah pugboy, bandaña like shade. Have a thyme patch that starting to try to get outta hand, the individual leaves HUGE, bigger than my hand. Need to trim and replant.

Real quick question tho
I have some pak choi to put down tomorrow, but I studying what I can use to discourage pests other than chemical insecticides. I not trying to use a setta chemical. Caterpillar done attack a few already in the seed trays, and they brutal boi. The other evening i watered them, everything normz.
By the next morning, I seeing entire leaves missing. So I know when I put them in the ground dem fuggers go try to have a field day and mash them up from a side and I'd prefer to avoid that.
What allyuh recommend?

Neem or Dipel. Both will require frequent applications.

keep the grass low, remove all dead leaves & old plant material. once they not getting a food supply or favorable living conditions they will move along on their own.
but it's a good thing to be seeing some small snakes & centipedes around, they keep other pests numbers in check.

It's called creeping cucumber. The fruits are edible.

I've seen it grown to cover chainlink fences in the southern US.

do chive farmers grow from seeds they germinate themselves or buy seedlings?

we normally just replant cuttings from chive we buy but want to grow some more.

Yeah, seedlings. Usually you'll get a crate with 120 chive seedlings for around $70- $100 depending on the time of year.

tray holding 84 seedlings - $10-$20
pack of about 500-1000 seeds - $10
about $20 worth of potting mix


do the math
cheaper to plant seed than seedling

^advantage is time...and sometimes you do a tray and it may not be the best and you waste more time
especially if you buy those tablet packs filled with seeds...germination is sometimes poor depending how old and how the seeds were stored

but those same trays of chive was 35$ before covid....since then almost all seedlings have gone up in price

I passed by asasco Aranguez today,
For small quantities they sell $10 for 12 seedlings

For a small home garden it might make more sense to just buy the big bundles of chive and use the root cuttings
Saves a lot more time as it hitting the ground running with developed root base.

Well, i mix some regent and poured 2Litres down the ants nest.
i went and kick up the nest yesterday, no ants came out.
they cut the grass yesterday and i discovered 2 more nests, so weekend i go deal with them 2.

Next question:
what good for wild dasheen?
after we cut the grass last time, we sprayed a gramoxone, diuron, 2,4-D mix and it kept the grass down, but the last set of rains like it created new life.

Spray Diuron mixed with 2,4-D first. It takes more than seven days for either to move into the plant.

If you want to burn down any remaining weeds or grass, you can spray with Gramoxone after two weeks.

The Rangoon Creeper is nice but can get heavy. I also saw Ivy cover a chainlink fence pretty good
