No country is really wealthy if she cannot provide her own food.
No country is immune to economic woes if her citizen cannot produce what they eat.
Every powerful countries as known today are able to meet their food demand and export to other countries.
Its the foundation to which every country must be based on to be economically prosperous.
Let's join hand to sustain our economy and our own prosperity.

Do you know that you can reduce cost of production by 40% in plantain production if you are able to produce your own suckers?

Be on the watch out for my coming articles on how to start producing your own suckers for your plantain farm.



By the way,drop your questions or challenges you are facing on the farm on my thread to get them answered by an experience agro-preneur.
thanks.
what about absentee (abroad )farmers who cannot visit regularly for weeding and others

Irrigation system is very important for your plantain especially during dry season.

Re: How To Start A Profitable Plantain Farm In Nigeria (pics) by Lesgupnigeria(m): 7:27am On Dec 09, 2016
Before venturing into plantain business,know all the challenges and risks involved and how to mitigate it.
No worthwhile agribusiness without measured risks

I have decided to take the plunge into plantain (See this thread for more details/background http://www.nairaland.com/3475013/request-top-3-items-cultivate ).

However, I have seen some recommendations that suggest to start out small , then expand. I like this idea.

So, the way I am planning to start small is by having a 3m X 3m spacing , and then, either the second or third season, increase the density on the same area by reducing the spacing to 1.5m X 1.5m.

My question here is , are there any drawbacks (or maybe additional advantages ) to doing this ?

The primary drawback that comes to mind it that the end fruit might be smaller once the density is increased. (However , I plan to mitigate that risk by fertilization and irrigation both before and after the increase in density)
The primary advantage I see is the start small , learn and use the knowledge to expand.

The more the spacing,the less the suckers to be planted which will affect your yield.
The closer the spacing,the higher the difficulty in managing it well and the farm might not last
