Farmers usually buy plants from a nursery. The Government nurseries of Karnataka I found was far better than commercial ones in terms of variety of plants. Also if you only showed the registration of your land you could get coconut saplings free, teak trees for less than five rupees and many other such benefits. A visit to such a nursery makes you realise how much the Indian government is doing for India and why since independence India is making progress so rapidly.

One of the greatest tools used in India is called the Itachi and available for rent for rupees 750 for an hour. It does the work that men take weeks to do by hand in a couple of days. Some work like pulling out tough roots might even be impossible for man takes only seconds for the Itachi to accomplish. I would not recommend getting in to farming in India without an Itachi.
