I will be teaching you step by step pratical ways to setup your plantain farm so follow me as I do mine.
Attached are my pictures on the field please read and look at them before you ask questions.

Why am i doing these for free? I noticed that a lot of new and existing farmers are now showing serious interest in having a plantain farm and most of these people will not be able to afford consultant.

So Let go.

Plantains (Musa) have played interesting and impportant roles in the history of human civilizations. These seedless fruits are eaten and joked about by Westerners, but they also constitute a crucial part of human diets in all tropical regions.

Having decide to own a plantain farm the 1st thing you need is land.

Please it's not advisable to rent land for your plantain plantation. But if that is the only option available then make sure you can eventually buy the land.

Plantain is very easy to cultivate and maintain unlike other cash crops. it’s a low capital requirement farming business.
Almost every Nigerian soil is good for the plant as experience has shown contrary to what scientist will tell you. Therefore, if you have any land with loamy soil, you are good to go.

This are what plantain like and dislike.

If you want them to be happy! Plantains like:
1. Rich, dark, fertile soils.
2. Lots of mulch and organic matter. LOTS. Just keep piling it on.
3. Lot of nitrogen and potassium. (Chicken manure!)
4. Steady warmth, not too hot and not too cold. (Plantain are sissies when it comes to temperatures...)
5. Steady moisture, in the ground and in the air.

But Plantain dislike:
1. Strong winds.
2. Extreme heat or cold.
3. Being hungry or thirsty.
4. Being alone and exposed.

Plantains, thrive in tropical regions.
Warm temperatures, bright sun and adequate moisture create optimum growing environments.
Tropical soils, however, are not always suitable for plantain production.

Now that you have a land for your plantain plantation project you need to clear the land are there 2 way to achieve that.
Manual Clearing or Mechanized Clearing. Any type you choose is okay just make sure it's well cleared.

Loamy soils are the best producing soils because they contain a good organic to inorganic ratio.
Organic materials, such as decaying plants and insects, provide soil with air, nutrients and water-retaining matter.

This combination of ingredients, when combined with mineral particles, allows soil to remain loose and fertile.

In tropical rain forests part of Nigeria, organically rich soils are shallow.
Plantains will thrive for one to three years but then die back because the layer of organic matter is easily depleted.

To avoid depletion, it is necessary to provide soils with compost and mulch.

Plantain is one of the most important staple that feeds the world.

Plantains are treated in much the same way as potatoes and with a similar neutral flavor and texture when the unripe fruit is cooked by steaming, boiling or frying.

After Clearing Your Land The Next Thing To Do Is Farm Layout Design. You have to consider the future when you will be harvesting your plantain.

Plantains fruit all year round, which makes the crop more reliable all-season staple food.
