Would avocados grow there? Seems that this crop could do well in isan

As far as I know, not all avocados grow well at this altitude (Isan). 

I'm currently growing 4 different cultivars here in Isan but it's still too early to say which one does well here.

They might do it but it's not legal anyway.

 

 

The OP is looking for suggestions about what to grow on his land, not legal advice.

If you want a small farm in Thailand, you have to start with a large farm that is family run. Than just wait a few years. 

First of all, it is not my farm, but my gf land, where her parents is going to take care of the trees, and maybe make sure so nobody steel the mushroom, water, and other things. It is not a farm with houses on it, but just a village farmland area. However, the village is growing, and there is starting to be houses around close by, so I guess it is just matter of time before someone buy up the smaller parsells, and make a farm out of it! 

 

Anyway, the question is, what would benefit the trees growing together, and what should be planted first? Thats my question!

 

Once again, it is not ment to be season income from it, but rather a placement of a small investment for my gf future. 

 

I aslo like to look at it as my green investment for my bad guilt of having such a good time.

Yawn.

Give it a rest will ya.

In 15 years the only person who has worked/driven a tractor on our 64 rai (approx 25 acres) is, wait for it... me.

I think the heads up notes are appropriate for advising a newbie.  Of course you can get away with it, but in fact it is illegal.  You can jump the border and live for years, you can drive drunk without a license or insurance, you can get away with a lot of things, until something happens and you get busted and then you're screwed. I'm a calculated risk taker, but I don't advise anyone else to be.

Im well awere of Thailand and thai rules, and how they practice them. 

 

Working on own house and farmland, have as far as I know, never been a problem, unless you have problems with someone in the village from before. So, no surprises I know of. 

 

But it is good to inform everyone what the rules is of course, so we all can make our own decissions based of what we know.

Surprise, we have been talking to different people in the village, about planting trees, and now we know why the land is so cheep, or why we got it cheep. Paperwork and everything is as good it can be, but we are the land next to the national park. Thats why everyone say, food production is good there, but we should not plant any trees. 

 

Anyone with experience about that from before? 

 

And if it is to good to be trye, it is likely it is.

Avocados as well but you need at least two trees as they sex themselves into male and female for pollination.

 

Edit: as above, I'd only read page 1.

 

Good luck- I am envious of you 3 or 4 Rai is what I would like but I prefer the single life. It would be nice to be able to buy land without any strings attached!

We will plant hardwood first of all, and then the family can plant what goes good together with the hard wood. The land investment was far underpriced, and the rest of the family have connecting land, and nearby so they are farmers with green hands. They would know what they want, but as every other place I have been to, is when  neighbour start with something new the rest of the village do the same, so i said no Tamurin. 

 

bore hole with quality pipes, slurry, and pump 50 000,- ?

Wather tanks 5m3 10 000,-?

Bungalow 40 000?

 

Saplings? 

 

 

 

 

How long before you can cut and sell the hardwood (assuming your intention is to cut and sell)?

 

Is there any hint that into the future there could be negative laws about cutting the trees?

The land price with healthy trees will increase year by year until they are old enough to be harvested. 20 - 35 40 years. Depends on the soil, water, etc.

Seems like hardwood is out of question, since the high lords, have proved their power to steel land close to the Nationalpark before with wood. It have nothing to do with illegal or not, just the legality of who owns the land. 

 

So, what should we plant with in mind the temperature will rise the next decade or two? We should have penty of water, so that should not be an issue I think.

Have you thought about Leucaena (Kratin) trees as biomass or animal feed.
Though it makes just sense if you have some contractor that buys your stuff.

We arrived yesterday, and inspected the land. Nice piece of land close to 4 rai, and potatos seems to be what they plant that area mostly, but lately more of the plot owners have invested in Tamarind. 

 

We will go to ampur today, and discuss with them what we can do there. Im tired of all people who say what you can do, should do, and not to do, and they really do not know what they talk about.
