Abstract Plantain (Musa spp.) occupies a strategic position for rapid food production in Nigeria. It is ranked third among starchy staples. The country’s output doubled in the last 20 years. Production, which is concentrated in the Southern part of the country, still remains largely in the hands of small scale farmers who, over the years, have ingeniously integrated it into various cropping systems. Production is male dominated, while women essentially handle marketing. The inadequate knowledge of improved cultural practices of the crop by the farmers, an inefficient system of extension services and skewness of specialization in areas of research are part of the reasons why yield potential of plantain is still low in the country. Contributions of plantain to the income of rural households in major producing areas in Nigeria continue to increase tremendously in the last few years. Unlike some other starchy staples whose demand tend to fall with rising income, demand for plantain increases with increasing income. With the potential for industrial processing of plantain, which has recently been adopted, and the increased interest in production by small and large scale farms in the country, it is believed that Nigeria will continue to be one of the world’s largest producers of plantain.

Suckers
Plantains are vegetatively propagated, most often from suckers (shoots that grow from a bud at the base of the plant) or from corms (underground bulbs known as rhizomes). The use of whole corms is very laborious so it is more common to grow from small pieces of corm. There are three different types of banana suckers which are produced by the mother plant; maidenheads, sword suckers and water suckers. Maidenheads have a large pseudostem which does not produce fruit. Sword suckers have a narrow base, short pseudostem and narrow, blade-like leaves. They produce healthy, fruitful pseudostems when they mature Water suckers have short pseudostems and broad leaves. Water suckers are not strongly attached to the rhizome and generally produce weaker plants and less fruit. Maidenheads and large sword suckers are preferred over water suckers.

Unlike starting other tree farms, starting a plantain farm and growing plantain are easier and less complicated. Although growing plantain still require ones attention, the level of skill required is not as intensive as other trees.

HOW TO START PLANTAIN CULTIVATION
1. Do you have an empty land? if yes you are well positioned, it grows in all kinds of soil but best in a loamy soil
2. Prepare the soil by decomposing it with decaying plants, mulch etc., this is to protect the suckers from the harsh sun that may dehydrate it
3. Get plantain suckers from heathy plant and cut space them
4. In case you wish to add fertilizers, use very little and ensure they are mostly good NPK fertilizers.
5. Do not weed the plantain with any form of modern implement especially at their early stage of development, use mostly hand to weed so as not to harm the tender sucker
6. water them as may be needed

A REVIEW OF PLANTAIN PRODUCTION, PROBLEMS AND PROSPECTS The soils in Nigeria fall into four zones: (a) the northern zone of sandy soils; (b) the interior zone of laterite soils; (c) the southern belt of forest soils; and (d) the zone of alluvial soils. Forest soils in the southern belt are naturally fertile as a result of dense vegetation cover. This zone also contains laterite soils. Forest soils are good for cocoa, palm and rubber production and are also the main soil types in the plantain and banana producing regions of Nigeria. Plantain production is mainly in the Southern states of Nigeria, which include Akwa-Ibom, Cross River, Akwa-Ibom, Imo, Enugu, Rivers, Edo, Delta, Lagos, Ogun, Osun and Oyo states. Annual rainfall in these areas is usually above 1000 mm year-1, spread over 7 to 9 months. Plantain is transported to other parts of the country from these states.

Musa parasidiasca belongs to the natural order, plantaginaceae which contains more than 200 species, twenty-five or thirty of which have been reported. The common plantain (Plantango major) has broad, irregular oval leaves, abruptly contracted at the base into a long broad, channelled footstalk. The fully grown blade is 1.3–2.4 meters long and about two- third as broad, usually smooth, with several parallel veins. Plantain grows more than any other plant in compacted soils, is abundant beside paths, roadside and other areas with frequent soil compaction. It is also common in grassland and as a weed among crops. It is wind pollinated and propagates primarily by seeds which are held on the long narrow spikes which rise well above the foliage. The large diversity that occurred in plantain has resulted in a variety of cultivars.

This is the breaking down......For one acre of plantain Farmland...
***Plantain Havested Is 750
***Market Woman Usually buy At Dozen which everybody knows 12 is A Dozen
***Market Paid #8000 Naira Just for a dozen
Please Note Carefully All the Number Where the Belong Above.....
750÷12=62.2 Let Round up the figure to 64...
750 is the Harvested Plantain
12 is all we known as one Dozen
62 is the answere Figure wen you divide.....
8000 is what market woman pays for one dozen...
OK.....Now ......62.2 let's say 64 cos we rounded it up to 64.....now 64x8000=512,000.00 Naira is your initial income for one acre of plantain......Clap for me...its from experience not what I read or framed...thank Clifford

Soil Analyses Soil samples were taken 10 cm increments from the surface to 50 cm depth, before burning the biomass in 1994 (Table 1). Soil pH was determined in water (1:5 ratio). Basic cations (Ca2+, Mg2+, K+) were extracted in a 0.1 M 1:10 BaCl2/NH4Cl solution. Organic carbon was determined using a modified Walkley-Black method (Heanes, 1984). Total nitrogen was determined using the Bremner method (Bremner and Tabatabai, 1972; Bremner and Mulvaney, 1982).

Urea is a low cost nitrogen fertilizer form. This is because of its high nitrogen composition and consequent low transport and storage costs. Urea may be the fertilizer of choice when only nitrogen is needed in a soil fertility program. Urea converts to ammonium bicarbonate within about 48 hours after field application. Nitrogen in this form will tend to volatilize to the air as ammonia gas. This lost fertilizer investment risk can be minimized or eliminated by assuring that the urea gets into the soil and does not merely remain on the surface of the soil or crop foliage. This can be accomplished by irrigating in the urea; by plowdown soon after surface broadcast application; or by banding or injecting the urea directly into the soil. For further information see Chapter 8 “Fertilizer Composition and Reactions in Soils,” Utah Fertilizer Guide,

Propagators are used for sprouting of new seedlings and hardening of the subsequent sprouts. Simple propagators can be constructed using fairly cheap materials, such as bamboo and polythene sheets. Enterprising banana seedling producers could use iron rods and cast a concrete floor. It is important that at least 50% shade is provided and that the fragile seedlings are well-protected, by constructing a shade above the propagators. A convenient size for a propagator is 1.5 (width) x 5.0 (length) x 1 (height) meter. Propagators should be kept clean and completely covered with transparent polyethylene sheets. Humidity and temperature should be high. The propagator compartments can be made using wood or bricks and should measure not more than 0.5 m in height.

The advantages of in vitro micropropagation include higher rates of multiplication; production of clean, or disease-free, planting material; and the small amount of space required to multiply large numbers of plants. These advantages of micropropagation are particularly relevant to vegetatively propagated crops, such as banana and plantain (Musa Plantain), in which germplasm handling typically is fraught with such obstacles as slow multiplication, bulkiness, and poor phytosanitary quality of conventional propagules. Hence, in vitro, shoot-tip culture is a vital technical adjunct to any international Musa breeding program for multiplication and dissemination of newly bred clones. Thus, development of a shoot-tip culture technique for micropropagation of Musa has received considerable attention during the past 15 years and since has become well established

Effect of plantain (Musa paradisiaca (L) AAB genomic group) peel and stalk extracts were investigated using percentage inhibition test. Complete inhibition of growth (100%) was observed for Aspergillusniger, Aspergillus oryzae and Rhizopus stolonifer at 1.0 mg/ml concentration of stalk extract. Peel extract inhibited A. niger 100%, A. oryzae 76.67% and R. stolonifer 56.67% at the same concentration. As concentration reduces, growth inhibition reduces also up to the minimum inhibitory concentration. The results of this work justify that the plant extracts were able to inhibit and kill the growth of spoilage fungi and this implies that the extract in

Vegetative growth Neither soil amendments, fertilizer applications methods nor fertilizer compositions had a significant effect on pseudostem height or girth, or on leaf area at flowering (Table 4). Treatment effects were only significant for the number of leaves at flowering between Saline-Ring-NPK plants (8.2 leaves/plant) and Amended-Mixed-NPK and Amended-Ring-NPK+micro plants (14.0 and 13.8 leaves/plant, respectively). Replacing the saline field soil in the root zone with non-saline soil improved the growth of ‘Malindi’ plants compared to those planted in saline soil.

Like plantain, the plant is short and tree-like with a sturdy pseudostem and large broad leaves arranged spirally at the top. The leaves are large blades with a pronounced central midrib and obvious veins.
