Hi etrader...

Good thread...I want to clear my 2acres before month end, I am planning to plant cocoa and plantain together.

Is this advisable and what are the pros and cons of this?

How many suckers will the 2acres consume, and how will the spacing be?

Thanks in anticipation

Re: Hybrid Plantain suckers / How to set up plantain farm by etrader(m): 10:01am On Jan 15
First where is your farm located? This is because the measurements dimensions is variable from one region to another. In South West, a plot is measure 60ftx120ft while in South South or South East a plot is measure 50ftx100ft.

Due to this measure different there will be deferent in total numbers of suckers required by each. It can't be the same quantity required in South West with the one in South South.....
As will know 6 plots equivalent to 1 acre of land...

Therefore, in South West you will need 800 due to 8ftx8ft but if you choose 6ft x 6ft you will need 900 to 1000 suckers.

While in Southern Nigeria you will need 600 per acre with planting distance of 8×8ft...

Hello sir, i don't see your comments earlier, if you are to plant cocoa on your farm. Plantain is best crops farmer use to nurture Cocoa and when Cocoa grow to mature, plantain will be totally destroy.
This led to one of youruba adage said ' ogede to wo cocoa ye, ko to do igi buruku"
Meaning Plantain nurture Cocoa it now a bastard tree. ( Sorry for my interpretation if not comprehensive enough to your standards..lol������)

As you know life spam of Cocoa is longer than plantain.. Cocoa can stand for 100 years. If you intend to mix it with cocoa, your planting distance will be different from ordinary Plantain plantation..... 10×10 ft is ok as Planting dimensions.

To determine total number of Suckers required, divide the dimensions by 10ft and multiply the out put, that will be total number of Suckers you will need to plant on your farm.

A lady called me, she said, she I interested in setting up Pantain and Cocoa Plantation that I should advise her which part of Ogun state she can get a very good soil for cultivation? And how can she identify the best soil for these crops.
Re: Hybrid Plantain suckers / How to set up plantain farm by etrader(m): 2:34pm On Feb 03
The best place to get good soil for cultivation of Plantain and Cocoa at Ogun state . Note, the best soil for cultivation of plantain is the best soil for cultivation of cocoa.

Ijebu axis of Ogun state is the best soil for cultivation of plantain and Cocoa plantation. If you move around ijebu Igbo toward osun river side. Ogbere and ijebu Ife side....they have a very good soil for cultivation of these crops

Upon coming planting season

Everything has time in agriculture, there is time land or field preparation, there is time for planting , there is plant for wedding and there is time for harvesting...

The best planting period for Plantain plantation is by end of dry season toward beginning of rainfall. In case your farm consist of beg trees there is need for you to fell it, you shd be start clearing from January....this is because the trees will properly dry before u set it on fire for proper burning.

In case there is no big trees on your farm you can clear it by February or at any convince time. You may decide to set it on fire or you pack it aside. It very cheap and effective if you set it on fire, those ashes will serve as manure to the crops too.

But if you decide to pack it aside, you will nee to pay extra money for labourer to do that for you. While not wait for a week or two weeks after clearing for you set it on fire.

I beg you forget about those theory on paper where you will be advised not to burn it because it will affect the surface nutrients. In fact from my own practical finding i discovered that crops plant under high concentration of Ashe grow faster than just ordinary soil.

Can I start planting this February? Pls advise
Re: Hybrid Plantain suckers / How to set up plantain farm by etrader(m): 10:20am On Feb 11
U can start planting by February, remember sucke s consist of water, the water on sucker is enough to support it grow. By March rain will start which going to complement it.

So go ahead and plant by February.

In my own case I do plant by January, actually some will die but majority will survive...

This is serious o. How can u tell someone to plant in February without irrigation. All this online farmers self.
My candid advice, best time to plant ur plantain is May upward.
Don't dare it planting anything in February if u r using rainfeed agriculture except you have irrigation in place.
In ur own interests, Will advice u to plant in May due to 2 main reason; by May, u r sure that it will rain at least one a week n the most important thing, ur plantain will fruit when is scarce next year so you will cashout big time.
If u plant earlier, u will lose some stickers n also they will start fruiting by December or January which is dry season producing low yield hence massive loss. (small bunches)

Re: Hybrid Plantain suckers / How to set up plantain farm by etrader(m): 12:14pm On Feb 18
It doesn't mean anything, you can go ahead. Lol. You said April or May when did you want to plant your corn. You remember that suckers still consist of water, the water on sucker it enough for it grow till March when rain will improve than this period.

If you plant by April or May, when did you want to harvest, the harvest will be during coming dry season, if your farm is at up land, definitely your plantain fruit will be small because by time it need water, there will not be water available unless you can irrigate your farm. And you know how costly to irrigate an acre now.

Therefore I will advise you to start planting now and if you intend to add corn, so so by 2nd week of March.

Pls which market place is better to sell my plantain and how much are they selling per dozen of bunches now?

Pls I have 20 dozen for sell
Re: Hybrid Plantain suckers / How to set up plantain farm by etrader(m): 11:26am On Mar 13
Yes you can take it to market around you. In case your farm is within Lagos, Ogun, Ondo or Edo state you can bring it down to Lagos. Majority of people concentrate on Mile 12, Mushin markets. Why not try Lagos inner market like Ile-epo market along iyana-ipaja Abule -Egba axils. You can also try oke-Afa market. You can sell your goods at a good prices at this inner market. This is because majority of vehicle that bring farm produce to Lagos are try to avoid Lagos enforcement agencies like Lastma, V.I.S that is reason why they don't like to go inner part of Lagos to deliver their goods. They like discharge their goods at Ketu, Mile 12 and co. If you can go extra mile to deliver your goods at inner Lagos market, you make more money than those market closer to Lagos bothers.

Similarly, you are also bring the foods closer to consumer. All this will enhance you more income. These are the things middle me does, and this make them make more money than farmers. You too can try this same, you will definitely see charges.

You said you have 10 dozen of plantain to harvest, that is not a joke try to bring it down to major market closer to you. In case you decide to sell for middle men, you must have experience on how to buy and sell plantain before you can do that unless, they will cheat you.

You are free to call it char with me on below contract for procurement of plantain suckers and how coaching on plantain plantation...

Mixing Cropping

Don't forget that you can mix corn with your plantain. Within 3-4 months your corn is ready for harvest while plantain keep growing.

Remember that Nigeria has shortage of corn last year which lead into high cost of poultry feed. This lead to license FGN gave to 4 companies to import maize into country. If you look around you, you will see that the price of eggs or poultry products are still on high side. That show that there is shortage of their major raw material of their feeding which is corn. You too can tap into this and make your money.

If you decide to sell your corn as fresh 3 months is ok, while dry corn will take 4 months. By mixing corn with planting does not affect your plantain.

The money you make on corn is enough to cover the money you spent on setting up your plantain plantation.....

Why My Plantain Produce small fruits on 2nd Harvest

In case you notice that your first batch of plantain fruits you harvest was so big while the 2nd batch is very small. What can cause this and how to control it.

In case you observe this on your plantain, all you need to do is to make sure that you remove all the suckers around your crop, you can remain single mature one. Also make sure that the surrounding is wet or cool. By doing this you will definitely get needed results.

How do they sell at Ile-epo market
Re: Hybrid Plantain suckers / How to set up plantain farm by Olowo2020: 3:35pm On Mar 20
Price varies depending on how big it's. If you have big sizes, I mean No 1 plantiain bunch, dozen sell between 35-40k. Before u can have this, you have cultivate have cultivated your plantain inside swamp land. You too can go to market by yourself you will notice that small bunches are very common. But if you have big bunches. You are good to go. You will definitely smile back home
