Black Pepper is a creeper which needs a support to grow. In India Pepper has been cultivated predominantly as an Inter-crop on Trees whereas in Vietnam Pepper is grown as a Mono crop on Brick Pillars with very High density planting.

In India the average number of Trees per hectare under inter cropping system is 190 whereas under a mono cropping system in Vietnam it is approx. 950 Brick Pillars.

In India, one or two vines are grown per support tree, but in Vietnam, at least four vines are supported by a pole or Brick Pillar. So, the difference is also in the number of plants in a particular area under cultivation.

In India, the average number of plants per hectare using trees, under inter cropping system is only 560. In a mono cropping system, where Brick pillars are used, the plant population may go up to 2,500 per hectare which results in very high yield.

In Vietnam, the Farmers take care of their vines with regular Fertigation resulting in very high productivity

The average production in India is 400 kg/hectare, where as it is 2 Metric Tonne/hectare in Vietnam.



The buyer will invest in Half Acre Villa Plot at Coorg which is the Pepper hub of India. Om99 Estates will earmark a part of the Villa plot for the Holiday Home and will setup and manage a sustainable high yielding Black Pepper Plantation in the remaining area. The plantation is based on the Vietnamese and Indian Model of plantation and incorporates the best practices from both these models. In India Coffee is Inter planted with Pepper. A 50 kg bag of Coffee fetches Rs 2900 – Rs. 3000 whereas a 50 kg bag of Pepper fetches around Rs. 30,000 – Rs.32000 clearly indicating that planting Pepper as a Mono crop  is more profitable than Coffee.

In the Indian Inter cropping model, a Half Acre Villa plot will have 40 Support Trees on which Pepper vines will grow. In Coorg Heights, Black Pepper will be grown as a Mono crop which means that only Black Pepper will be planted on the on the Villa plot. This will ensure “No competition” from other trees like Coffee and more number of trees can be planted in the same area. Om99 will construct 200 Brick Pillars ( 15 Ft High and 2 x2 ft. wide ) which will act support for the Pepper Vines as against 40 Support Trees in the Indian Model ensuring high productivity.

There are approximately 2 – 3 Pepper vines Per Tree in Indian Model i.e. 60 Pepper Plants in Quarter Acre. Om99 will have about 8 Vines Per 2x2 Pillar or about 500 Plants per Quarter Acre ensuring high Pepper Yield.

The plantation will be irrigated via Drip irrigation throughout the year. ICAR – Indian Institute of Spices Research, Kozhikode (Calicut), Kerala, India and Om99 Agrotech Private Limited which is a group company of Om99 Estates will be consultant partners ensuring Latest Agro techniques and Integrated Pest and Disease management.
