Coriander

At SriAg Farms Coriander is grown as an intercrop in the Elephant Foot Yam plantation. Our goal is obtain maximum productivity from unit area sustainably and planting intercrop between the rows of the main crop is a demonstrated method of improving productivity. Our selection of intercrops (onion, garlic, coriander) is based on the strategy that the intercrop reaches maturity and is harvested within 4 months of planting to avoid competition to the matured main crop. 

Coriander (Coriandrum Sativum L) is one of the most important minor seed spices produced as well as exported from India.
