THE GOLDMINE IN PLANTAIN FARMING – Regular Sources of Income

Plantain and banana are widely cultivated in the southern and middle belt regions in
Nigeria. The annual local production outruns the demand. Being a highly perishable food
item, substantial quantities rot away in a short period after harvest.
When the rains start which signals the commencement of planting, the plantain
farmers plant at the same time. They harvest at the same period and flood the markets
with the product. After a short while, the product soon becomes scarce where much
rots away due to unavailable technology for conversion for a longer shelf life.
The solution is to process the fruits into a powdered form which can be packaged and
stored for a longer time without spoilage and wastage occurring. The natural flavors in the
powdered form can also be utilized in industrial food processing.
Foods and drinks such as cakes, ice creams, yoghurt and custard are flavored to enhance
their taste. The flavors are imported into Nigeria and are synthetic, therefore not as
good as the natural flavors in banana and plantain powder. The natural flavors can be
imparted into other foods.
There is a readymade market within and outside Nigeria for banana and plantain
powder. Nigerians in the diaspora, who are looking for businesses to do in Nigeria can
look into the aspect of setting up a suitable processing technology to convert banana
and plantain into powdered form. The benefits are many to the farmers and to the
economy.
When the planting season commences, at the start of the rain. The improved variety
sucker costs about N120.00 to N150.00 per sucker even from official sources. The
demand for the improved variety sucker is high.

Investment Costing

STAGE 1: Cost of buying 1 acre of land N55,000 .
STAGE 2: Cost of using manual labour for land preparation at N15,000/acre
STAGE 3: Cost of buying 1,000 double bunch Plantain suckers @ N150 each is N150,000.
STAGE 4: Transportation of suckers to farm, estimated is N10,000
STAGE 5: Cost of Planting 1,000 suckers at N15 per stand is N15,000
STAGE 6: 1st -5th Weeding @ N30, 000.
STAGE 7: Purchase of Manure/Fertilizer, Transportation & Fertilizer Application @ N25,000.
STAGE 8: Security @ N50, 000/year.
STAGE 9: Management fee @ N50, 000/year

TOTAL= N350,000. + Miscellaneous 30,000 = N380,000
At harvest you will get 2,000 bunches, if you sell at give away price of N800 each, you will have N1.6Million and 3,000 New Suckers. By 2nd -3rd year this Plantain Farm may expand to 2 or 3 Acres if seed suckers and proceeds are reinvested. With a Projected Return On Investment ranging between N1Million and N4Million by 3rd year if expanded.

We also have 50 acres of land in Ikire just less than two hours from Ibadan, oyo state for sale with document very good for farming at N55k per acres. If you want we can manage the farm for you. There we manage farms for investors

The following Nigerian states have the best comparative advantage for plantain and
banana farming:
Lagos, Ondo, Ogun, Oyo, Oshun, Ekiti, Edo,
Delta, Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Imo, Bayelsa,
Abia and Ebonyi.

The domestic uses of plantain are:

Fried slices (dodo) and plantain chips .The industrial uses are plantain flour/bread,
cake/pancake,baby foods,wine,beer,dried flakes,biscuits and cookies.
Modern breeding has produced high yielding varieties

Two ways to do the business:
a) You can buy acres of land, drill bore hole, do land preparation, plant trees as wind
breakers and plant good grade suckers and secure the farm . You can intercrop with our
hybrid MELON so as to maximize the land (Integrated farming)
b) You can go for government land available for lease all over Nigeria. The lands are
managed by the various River Basin Development Authorities across Nigeria, they
can help you to prepare the land with their lease tractor and they also have irrigation
facility, plant trees as wind breakers and plant good grade suckers and secure the
farm. You can intercrop with our hybrid MELON so as to maximize the land
(Integrated farming)
If you need land for agriculture, government land is available for lease all over Nigeria.
The lands are managed by the various River Basin Development Authorities across
Nigeria.
For the lands managed by the Ogun- Oshun River Basin Authority, which covers
Lagos, Ogun, Oshun and Oyo States, they have offices in those states where you can
go to pay N2500.00 per acre of land per year.


If you are one of those looking for salary jobs in today's Nigeria, or you have just one
sources of income, please stop that madness. Go pay N2500.00 for a hectare of
land for Cassavaa/plantain farming.

There are two benefits to you:
One, you buy at a cheaper price than you will if you buy during the planting season.
Two, you will not wait 12 months from planting to harvest. If you are a starter,
ensure that you are buying the improved variety sucker and buy from the right
sources. Do not be deceived to buy the local variety sucker if what you want is the
improved variety sucker.
The beauty of the plantain plant is in its ability to reproduce itself in geometric
proportions. A healthy plantain plant can reproduce about 5 suckers around it which
means that one plant has produced another 5 plants.
Therefore, you will not have to buy fresh suckers for planting for the 2nd year and
beyond. There are three benefits to you. First benefit is that you won’t be buying fresh
suckers for planting in the 2nd year
Second benefit is that you can sell the suckers while waiting for the harvest of the plantain
bunches from the existing plants. Thirdly, you can transplant the suckers on another
plot of land which means that your farm is expanding without buying fresh suckers.

There are two types of suckers in Nigeria – the local variety and the improved variety
sucker. The local variety sucker takes about two years to mature from planting to harvest
while the improved variety takes one year. The local variety generally has lower yields
and more disease-prone, while the improved variety has higher yields in terms of fingers
per bunch, size of the fingers and the sweetness of the fruits.
The improved variety brings faster returns on investment than the local variety sucker. The
improved variety comes in different grades that indicate the level of improvement.
Always go for the latest improved variety sucker. If you are a starter, go for the
improved variety sucker.
However, note that the improved variety sucker is costlier than the local variety
sucker.
When the planting season commences, at the start of the rains, the improved variety
sucker costs about N120.00 to N150.00 per sucker even from official sources. The
demand for the improved variety sucker is high.

How to Make More Money In The business
You can always process your plantain into flour and package it well. It's our plan to
start making standard plantain flour in the nearest future especially when our products
exceed what the market demands.
Besides, why selling your plantain to the local-market women who're likely to buy it at
cheapest prize ever when you can market it by yourself? Marketing is very important if
you're going to make it in farming in Nigeria.
Marketers makes 10x of profit made by farmers, so why will you allow these people to
reap you off when you can be a producer and marketer at the same time? The best way to
do it is to start sourcing for market before harvest.

Hybrid MELON also available for intercropping.
Spacing is critical. Plantain crop need the space otherwise the competition for nutrients will kill them off and kill your investments.
Maintenance of the plantation is critical, very critical to its survival and achievement of your revenue projection, farming is hard but rewarding work, just do it right.
Use cured poultry waste mixed with sawdust close to the base of the plantain
Or use moringa leaves as fertilizer or if you know how to produce moringa liquid
manure. It give extra large bunches
Agronomic requirements
>>>Temperature: The optimal temperature for
growing plantain is 28°C. From 28 to 20°C, growth will gradually slow
down, and will become negligible around 16-18°C.
>>> Light: Shade accelerates height growth, and it is advisable to determine
the density depending on the cultivar selected, in order to provide the best light conditions for the plantation.
>>> Water: Plantain needs a lot of water. It should get around 200 mm
per month throughout its life cycle.
>>> Wind: Plantain is very sensitive to strong wind, which can cause physical
damage to the plant (torn leaves, toppling).
>>> Soil: Plantain grows best in deep soil that is well drained and rich in
organic matter. Fallow land can also be used, but the yield will depend on
what was previously grown and the duration of the fallow.

You can start small by buying two acres , plant plantain on one and plant cassava or other crops on the other then by the second year expand to the second acre.

At harvest you will get 2,000 bunches on an acre, if you sell at give away price of N800 each, you will have N1.6Million sales and 3,000 New Suckers. By 2nd -3rd year this Plantain Farm may expand to 2 or 3 Acres if seed suckers and proceeds are reinvested. With a Projected Return On Investment ranging between N1Million and N4Million by 3rd year if expanded.

Do yuo know that you can structure plantain plantation to turn you or your children to be millionare within a very short period.

Take an example if you just buy 2 acres of land at N55k each aaaaand set up plantain on the land after 5- 10 years the land can never remain the same price and the plantian on it will keep giving you cash without replanting for the next 10 years even if there is fire out break , once rain fall on it it will surely come back alife.

Testimony:


Testimony:

Mr Olufemi, who owns a plantain farm off Papa Lanto (on Ilaro/Sagamu) on the old
Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, said plantain farming is lucrative. He plants plantain for
profit and makes good cash from it yearly. He has identified breeds that are more
productive, high-yielding and pest-resistant for more profits.
At the beginning of the planting season, he bought 1,000 suckers at N150 each, which
totals N150,000. When he harvested, he got 1,000 bunches of plantain which sold for at
least N1400 each , he should it himself. So, he made about N1.4 million from the sale. If he had planted the
double bunch varieties, he would have gotten between 1,800 to 2,000 bunches and would
have made (1,800 X1400) N2,520,000 sales not profit
He said after expenses, one could still make about 400 per cent profit.
To improve the quality of his plantains, Olufemi uses animal manure mixed with saw
dust on the farm.
Prospective investors need to have at least N350,000 if you are managing it yourself. This will cover purchase of the land, purchase of suckers, labour and other costs.
He said with an investment of N350,000, one can make more than N1 million in turnover and about 400 per cent in profit. The profit depends on the quantity of bunches that can be harvested per acre/hectare multiplied by the selling price per bunch of
plantain. Olufemi said plantain growing has changed the livelihoods of people. We helps entrepreneurs secure land for purchase, prepare it and get good suckers at a fee and manage the farm.
Plantain is an all-year round market. It provides monthly income year round after the first year harvest but must be well manage.
Prospective investors can start with an acre of land, which can contain 800 to 1000
suckers. The market is guaranteed.

Thanks @GGfadar, am glad that you are another testifier of the big cash in plantain farming.
Once you are above 45 years old stop eating high starch content food like cassava products (Garri, Fufu, loiloi, lafun/cassava folur etc) or yam products (Pounded yam, boiled/fried etc) rather eat more of plantain flour products...


Health benefits of plantains

1,Plantains are very reliable sources of starch and energy.

2, Plantains contain a high amount of dietary fibre which helps ensure healthy bowels and
reduces constipation.

3, Plantains have more vitamin C than bananas. Consumption of foods rich in vitamin-C helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful oxygen- free radicals.

4, Plantains have more vitamin A than bananas. In addition to being a powerful antioxidant, vitamin A plays a vital role in the visual cycle, maintaining healthy mucus membranes, and enhancing skin complexion.

5, As in bananas, they too are rich sources of B-complex vitamins, particularly high in
vitamin-B6 (pyridoxine).
Pyridoxine is an important B-complex vitamin that has a beneficial role in the treatment of neuritis, anemia, and to decrease homocystine (one of the causative factors for coronary artery disease (CHD) and stroke episodes) levels in the
body.

6,Plantains also contain folates, niacin, riboflavin and thiamin. Folates (folic acid) are
essential for healthy pregnancy.

7, Plantains also provide adequate levels of minerals such as iron, magnesium, and
phosphorous. Magnesium is essential for bone strengthening and has a cardiac-protective
role as well.

8, Plantains have more potassium than bananas. Potassium is an important component of
cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure, countering negative
effects of sodium.

9, Plantains are famed to be diuretic and can help prevent kidney and bladder problems.

10, Plantains ease the discomfort associated with the menstrual period.

11, The unripe plantain is more nutritious and healthy


Plantain has more calories weight for weight than in the fruit bananas. 100 g plantain consists of 122 calories, while dessert banana hold only 89 calories. Indeed, they are very reliable sources of starch and energy; ensuring food security for millions of inhabitants worldwide.


It contains 2.3 g of dietary fiber per 100 g (6% of DRA per 100 g). Adequate amount of dietary-fiber in the food helps normal bowel movements, thereby reducing constipation problems.


Fresh plántains have more vitamin C than bananas. 100 g provide 18.4 mg or 31% of daily required levels of this vitamin. Consumption of foods rich in vitamin-C helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful oxygen-free radicals.


Plantains have more vitamin A than bananas. 100 g fresh ripe plantains contain 1127 IU or 37.5% of daily required levels of this vitamin. In addition to being a powerful antioxidant, vitamin A plays a vital role in the visual cycle, maintaining healthy mucus membranes, and enhancing skin complexion.


As in bananas, they too are rich sources of B-complex vitamins, particularly high in vitamin-B6 (pyridoxine). Pyridoxine is an important B-complex vitamin that has a beneficial role in the treatment of neuritis, anemia, and to decrease homocystine (one of the causative factors for coronary artery disease (CHD) and stroke episodes) levels in the body. In addition, the fruit contains moderate levels of folates, niacin, riboflavin and thiamin.


They also provide adequate levels of minerals such as iron, magnesium, and phosphorous. Magnesium is essential for bone strengthening and has a cardiac-protective role as well.


Fresh plantains have more potassium than bananas. 100 g fruit provides 499 mg of potassium (358 mg per 100 g for bananas). Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure, countering negative effects of sodium.

If you are one of those Nigerians, roaming the streets for non-existing white collar jobs, put on your thinking cap and stay glued to this write up

The Federal Government of Nigeria has provisioned N200 Billion as loans to genuine farmers. The loans can only be disbursed through the Bank of Agriculture (BOA), formerly known as the Nigerian Agricultural Credit and Rural Development Bank Limited (NACRDB).


The steps to obtain the loan are as follows:
1) Locate the office of the Bank of Agriculture that covers the area or local government area where your farm is situated and open an account with the bank with a minimum deposit of N2,000.00

2) For the ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) requirements, you must present your NEPA Bill which confirms your place of residence + any of the approved means of identification such as International Passport, Drivers License, National Identity Card or Voters Registration Card. If you do not have the NEPA bill, forget the loan and do not waste your time going near the bank.

3) Other requirements are:
Complete and signed account form
Complete and signed mandate card
Present 4 passport photographs of yourself

4) You must run and operate the account for at least 3 -6months before applying for the loan. Do not think that you can just open the account, abandon it and show up after 6 months for the loan. The loan is not the usual national cake and the bank, newly repositioned, is not fooled. If you play that old game, the bank will doubt your integrity and commitment to repay the loan if granted and that means you may not get it.
Running and operating the loan means that you make it an active account. This means making sure that you save money and withdraw from the account on a regular basis. The bank wants to see that there are transactions going on in the account. Therefore, you should make regular deposits and withdrawals on the account during the 6 month period to create an active relationship that makes the bank have confidence in you.

5) You must have an existing farm, be it small or big at a fixed location and the farm must have its record of operations and activities on a daily basis neatly kept. The era of armchair farmers/political farmers/farms of no fixed address/classroom farmers are over. The bank will visit your farm for inspection when you apply for the loan.

6) The bank will check what you have on ground; see how far you have gone; what the loan is required for, and ensure that the loan is appropriate for what it is required. The bank wants to know whether you have an adequate knowledge of your area of farming business. You must be able to demonstrate the practical hands-on experience in your area of farming. The bank wants to know whether you have a project you are working on and the fund requirements. And within a month of the inspection, the loan will be approved if the bank is satisfied.

ADVANTAGE
THE LOAN DEDUCTION STARTS AFTER 6 MONTHS OF COLLECTION USSAGE BECAUSE IT IS FOR AGRICULTURE WHICH IS EXPECTED TO HAVE STABILIZED AT THE END OF 6 MONTHS.

What are you waiting for?
Get the land ready and start setting up the farm with what you have presently.
Then, go open an account with the Bank of Agriculture and operate it as required for at least 6 months.
Make an estimate of the farm’s fund requirements and get it ready before applying for the loan.

As i post this write up many nigerians have gotten the loan, some are awaiting their's while other are about to start the process.

If you buy an acre for your child & plant plantain on it in the next 15 years it would have been able to turn your child to be a millionare
