Sir the only bitter experience I have on watermelon was last year when I planted 2 acres of watermelon close to a village called Agbedo along ijaye road before ajibade. My watermelon was doing fine but the villagers will never allow me to harvest my produce before it fully mature. You will just see watermelon slice into two inside the farm, I want to cry but I learn a very great lesson. I was able to harvest cucumber on the same plot because cucumber is not eaten by most of the villager.... I loss all my watermelon to the villagers oooooo......
That is theft. one of the challenges of farming

sorry for replying you late, am just seeing ur question now. To plant pepper at this time of the year it a good timing in terms of marketing. But why considering climate factor/season, u must make provisions for irrigation to archive great success......... If this condition is met u are good to go........ RODO SEED IS AVIALABLE OOOOO.

Since it's about experience sharing, I can add a bit

Planted 10,000 tubers of yam last year but only got roughly 1200 big ones and 6000 seedlings. Most were stolen about 6 weeks before harvest so I was forced to start harvest up save some. Also had a similar experience with my watermelon and beans.

Ideally, farming has potentials but in reality, if the farm isn't properly secured and operation mechanized or automated. You just end up investing in soil fertilization

Sorry for the loss.Security and safety should be your number one priority before cultivation next time.
If it's a leased land,then you can get a sincere,reliable guard or if purchased,fence the whole farm or security dogs.

Fencing 4 hectares would have meant more investment on the structure, though walls are scaled efficiently when the reward is excellent. Think the dog option solves the problem but I no trust those fulani boys,walahi. ..
