Re: How To Start A Profitable Plantain Farm In Nigeria (pics) by Lesgupnigeria(m): 7:33pm On Dec 25, 2014
stint:

Thanks the advise. Ill try to weed before Januuary. I ll show more pictures then. When the rain starts im february. What can i plant to make good use of my land. I may not be able to afford plantain but am working on a loan sha. We have cut the root of the chukuchuku, we expect it to dry up. Cutting it give the workers injury. And it takes a lot of time. But by next year i plan to use my land fully and then expand. Am thinking of planting oil palm for the long term and cucumber or pepper for short term.
Ok
You can cultivate cucumber and tomato
oilpalm will not be appropriate with plantain.

I believe very much in integrity in business,if your integrity are questionable,then you should.not be in business.

A Business where you make huge profit at the expense of customers is totally unfair and should be discourage by all means.

I believe if you dont know much about something,you need to be open to your customers,you cannot be a jack of all trade and be successful in agricbusiness.

How can a person know all about the production and marketing of cassava,oilpalm,plantain,pepper,tomato, and moringa products.

Since i have started a new thread on plantain, I have actually being receiving threats from some people who claim to be plantain farmers that i am spoiling business for them because i expose the hidden truth about plantain business that they fail to tell their clients.

Even if it means paying the highest price.
Agriculture is my life and my life is forever dedicated to agriculture and i will continue to give out more relevant practical information.needed to help more people succeed in this business.

Please stay tuned as i open up to you on more hidden truths of plantain.business that they fail to tell you

Depending on the location the farm and also on the number of acres you want to cultivate.

Do more research before you commit your hard earned money to people who claim that they are farmers and at the end of the day fail to achieve result especially people

Find out and visit their farms,inquire about how many successful farm have they set-up and manage to make PROFIT and change the level of the farmers with real and solid proof.

Many of them are around and many will come in the name of being the experienced consultant to rob you of your hard-earned money in 2015.
BEWARE.

Ok.
you can plant on an acre of land.
waterland area is good during this time of the year but during the rainy season,you will create a water channel on the farm to reduce the large amount of water on the farm.

If your plantain yield is not like the one in the picture,you will be selling below average market price and loss is at the corner.

The type of suckers your mum used was the problem, i hope you have gone through this thread to know the correct type of suckers to make use of.
If you can post the pictures,i will have been able to see and advice better.
Its either the plantain farm was replanted with new suckers or if the suckers from the parent plantain can as well be used.
you can post pictures if you have them.

I will be talking about double bunch plantain today.
Some years ago, double bunch plantain was the thing in the agricultural world.
You trust Nigeria plantain farmers,they all order for the suckers and before they know what was happen, it was late.

Lesson To Learn: Before you rush to buy a new improved suckers, you must wait for at least 12 months and see the result from other farms before you buy any new variety.

These pictures was taken about 8months after planting from one of the plantain farm i set-up.
The other picture is the yield of the double bunch variety. It has a low yield compare to the other single bunch variety.
Get the good sucker variety to have a good yield.

Beware of people that claim they knows too much.

I will tell you what to do when you want to do business with them.

Make sure you sign an agreement with them before doing business with them and one of the condition that must be stated in their agreement before you do business with them is to show you their transactions of profit they have made from their agribusiness.Failure to show you that, please run with your hard-earned money.

2015 is around the corner.
