017 Marcutting Produces Fruit Rapidly

Lychee is about as valuable as chocolate when the value-add is applied properly at the grassroots level. From 25 trees come another 4 each, just after three years. In three more years those 100 trees produce 400 new trees, plus the 200 from the previous two years, so on and so forth. This kind of reasonable ramp up schedule gives enough time to develop the value-add. Later capacity building attracts capital for new technology, merchandising, marketing and distribution.
