The best planting period for Plantain is immediately dry season. Beginning of raining season.

Weeding

weed the plantation regularly during the first six months, using a machete or herbicide. failure to weed
the plantation may reduced the rate of growth of Plantain, this is because both Plantain and weed will be fight for the nutrient available on the soil.

Herbicide can be used on weeds up to 10-15cm in height. if they are higher, then they should be cut with machete. Herbic should then be applied when they begin grow back, but should never touch the Plantain crop

Today we talk on PROPPING
....Propping this involves supporting the plantain plant by using some form of support or a cord, called a prop, and use mainly for tall or in area that subject to strong winds. Pro should be used when bunches begin to appear.

This occur during the dry season because most crop loss strength and they can't stand upright.

bondingman:

plantain doesn't do well on waterlogging area but it grow well in land that has abilities to hold water so that the soil should be cool all days.

Loamy soil is the best, if it not close to river you can wet it regularly.

WHY YOU SHOULD INVEST IN PLANTAIN FARM

Do you know that plantain means much more than being carried with tray-pan and running after vehicles on the go-slow as so many are seen doing in many parts of Nigeria?

If we realize that the demands of these fruits that has become staple food in Nigeria and other parts of the world are increasing by the day, we would then know that thinking towards that area would make some serious business senses.

Take plantain for example, Nigerian are not playing with it as they prefer eating it in various ways both ripped and unripe and very good for those working on their sugar levels.Did you know that plantain flour is recommended for diabetes patient. You can ask your doctor if am lying.
In case you need PLANTAIN FLOUR in Large quantity you can call on me.

Also other foods like beans, rice, and groundnuts all make very good combination when taken with plantain. Think again about the delicious chips that we like to eat, all these and many more are the end products of plantain. So without going into much details, looking at various usages of these fruits is enough to tell someone with entrepreneurs mindset that this is simply, money in bunches!

Irrigation of plantain farm
If you are intend to go in large scale Plantain Farming, and you couldn't secure your land very close to water or you notice that your land is too hot during the dry season. You need to design means of getting water into your crops. This is called irrigation. It may be natural or artificial.

Assume your land is closer to river or stream you can channel the water into your farm. Or you dig well and make use of pumping machine to pump or wet your farm. You can also dig bore hole. Then you
Use pumping machine to wet the farm. You can call plumber to design best system wetting your farm.

[quote author=etrader post=37351196]What is Sucker?

The plantain seedling that you will plant is known
as the 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 or less. 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 cost. You can contact below mobile No for present price. The demand for the improved variety
sucker is high.

The demand pressure and the season affect the
price. If you are a starter waiting till the planting
season to buy the suckers, then you will likely get
them at a higher price than in an off-season.
Make sure that you get your sucker from
recommended sources and buy the right sucker.
This is where some have burned their fingers
badly, who bought the wrong suckers from wrong
sources and got nothing worthwhile at the end.

Re: Hybrid Plantain suckers / How to set up plantain farm by etrader(m): 8:10am On Oct 01, 2016
Proposal on 5 acres of plantain plantation

After you have secure your good loamy soil. You need to clear the land. This can be done by manual mean or by use of tractor. But the best way is manual this may cost you N60k depend on your location (Any example am given, is from Lagos)

Then you ORDER for your Hybrid Plantain suckers . On one acre, you need approximately 900-100 suckers. If make use of 6×8 ft as your planting dimensions. You will need 150 suckers on a plot of 60×120 ft. Then multiply it by 6, that it is 900 suckers that you need on one Acre.

On 5 acres you get 900×5 =4500 on 5 acres we need 4500 suckers

Each suckers sold for #100 (Negotiable)
4500×100= #450,000 that is cost of sucker

Cost of transport is depend on distance of your farm from our farm and quantity you bought . Within Lagos and ogun state you should prepared for #40,000

Then you arrange for labourer who can plant for you. You pay then base on your area.

Clearing of weed, after 2-3 months after planting you be prepared for weed clearing .This can be done in two ways: use of chemical or manual weeding method. The best is manual in case u don't see who can apply chemical perfectly. Because it must not touch the crop. You can contact near shop where they are selling agro allied chemicals , the last time I bought paraforce is #1700 per bottle due to economy crisis I can't predict how much you can spend on chemical.

But manual method is very good but costly. Aboki charge10k per acre.

This will repeat twice before your crop got to mature stage. When it form canopy then you spend less on weed clearing.

At end of the 1st harvest you make harvest all the plantain u plant but they may not ready for harvest at the time.

The cost are very depend on sizes.
If your market is Lagos , you sell your suckers between #800-#1500 as farmer to market woman .and you collect your money cash.

[b][/b] Harvesting Period of Plantain
Harvesting of Plantain is around the corner, this can be occur around September, October, November and December. At this stage plantain are very cheap in market and sell less. Dozen of plantain bunches are selling between of N10,000 to N15,000 compare to selling off season.

Also we can also harvest round the year. If your harvest off season, dozen sold between N14,000 to N18,000. Due to this you need to plan your planting period for your maximum out put.

If you plant now or plant during middle of dry season. Does it sound ridiculous to plant Plantain during the dry season. Lolz... I plant during dry season and my crop does not dead and i have good result.

You too can do so, and have good result. I love plantain, it is very rugged crop. it very difficult to die, even if you set your farm on fired. Plantain cant die.

[b][/b] How to get Healthy Plantain suckers

Plantain are not grown like other plants, but its grown through suckers and as such, choosing healthy suckers goes a long way to producing healthy harvests. Always use suckers from matured and dying plantain plants.

Transplant – While transplanting, make sure that the corm or the roots at the bottom is trimmed properly to facilitate good growths. Give appropriate distance gap between plants and keep the plants moist at the early days but do not over wet the soil because the leaves are not yet out for much water evaporation.

For Healthy Hybrid Plantain sucker call us on 08065987831 or send email to us on. msg4lekan@gmail.com

[/b]AGRONOMIC REQUIREMENT

AGRONOMIC is study of soils and plants: relating to the scientific study of soil management, land cultivation, and crop production


[b]
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.

[/b] 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.


[b]
Water: Plantain needs a lot of water. It should get around 200 mm per month throughout its life cycle. This can be done either artificial irrigation and Natural irrigation.


[/b] Wind: Plantain is very sensitive to strong wind, which can cause physical damage to the plant (torn leaves, toppling). This often occur during dry season. So you need to prepare for this challenge.

[b]
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.
