Introduction:

The Good Friend Organization and  Agro farms supplies well germinated and healthy Malabar Neem bio plants to the customers or farmers. Our plants are germinated in favorable conditions which makes sure that our bio plants will flourish into big trees within 5-6 yrs of time. Once the tree is felled, the stump throws many coppice shoots. These should be singled out to keep only one vigorous stem per stump, which will form the second crop.


History of Malabar Neem
Malabar Neem originates from the Meliaceae family and is an indigenous species of tree to India, South East Asia and Australia, where it has been cultivated as a source of firewood. The tree can be cultivated in all types of soil and requiring a low supply of water. Malabar Neem has the unique feature of growing to 40 feet within 2 years from planting and can be mechanically pruned and harvested as an energy crop.
Malabar neem is a specie belonging to the neem family. This tree is known for its fast growth. In recent times the farmers around Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh & Kerala have found the utility of this tree in both as a low grade timber and also a very useful wood for ply wood industry.
