PapaBrowne:
There is a wonderful material I have for Plantain farming with complete directions inclusive of full drawings and diagrams. Its a 24 page booklet that every plantain farmer must have. Its written by PRO-AGRO. I obtained it free.If you need it you get it free. Just request and I'll email it to you.
As many people as can get into farming should be encouraged to do so. In the attachment is a picture of the booklet.

PapaBrowne: Plantain Production is very lucrative. On a hectare of land, you can plant approx 2000 suckers. These suckers should be allowed to have families of maximum 3-4 plants. So on average, your one hectare can produce you 2000 suckers X 3 shoots= 6000 plants. If you have a hybrid these plants can produce very huge Plantain bunches. Some producing 2 and others one. Assuming an average of 1.5 bunches per plant, you can comfortably collect roundly about 9000- 10000 bunches per hectare. Now thats big, if you consider that if you sell a bunch whole sale for 500 Naira that would fetch you about 5 million Naira per hectare.


But wait. What if you add value. Trust me you'll make even 3 times that amount. So for instance rather than selling your plantain wholesale, why not consider making high quality plantain chips. Or Plantain Flour. Or plantain biscuits. There's a good number of ways to add value to plantain. You can easily earn five times your income if you choose to tweak the value chain a bit.


I always say, Agriculture is big business with lots of money to be made from it. The trick is to

1)Equip yourself with as much information as possible.
2)Connect with other farmers and form some kind of cooperative.
3) Practice farming based on international standards- Use hybrid seedlings and follow best farm management practices.
4)Add value to your product.
5) Smile immensely to the bank.



I will be much glad to receive the E-book via my mail,kindly send to Jackson44ink@yahoo.com

C'noteuchay:
am into plantain and banana plantation i can get u a high yield cameroun suckers @ an affordable rate inbox me lloydcnote@gmail.com

I have two high yeild varieties but they take longer to produce. What banana's miss in their yeild volume they gain in fast growth.

Infact, i prefer my fast growing variety to the high yeilding ones because of time saved...

Re: Starting A Plantain Farm by jta2012(m): 3:26pm On Feb 01
Thanks Emma,for you to successfully operate a plantain farm in Nigeria or any other part of the world ,u need money,the right environment,arable land ,security and sufficient supply of water .
U also need improved suckers that can produce in a year with disease resistant ability too
In addition to all these , u need basic information on plantain farming to guide u as a beginner in the business.
This we have done at jtaconsulting in form of an e-book which guide beginners in the biz ,what we have done is to conduct
research on Plantain farming and come up with a book to assist our teeming army of unemployed Youths who can become not
only comfortable but also employers of labours owning and running a plantain farm of at least ( 1 ) plot and later migrate to ( 1 ) acre ( 6 plots ) and above.
pls call 08184932156 for further enquiry.

Thanks and i wish u success in advance.
jtaconsulting
Lagos.
