Note: (1) Economics of cultivation are taken from available 

                literature of NABARD, CSIR, ICAR,  ICFRE, Forest 

                Deptt., NHB and other reliable sources. 

 

(2) Economics of species have been worked out on the 

      basis of input in the form of elite quality planting  

       material.

 

(3) These cost do not include expenditure towards 

       manpower, infrastructure development and cost of 

       land
