By Othouke Felix

Cassava, an arable crop still remains an untapped goldmine in Nigeria and the recent hike in the price of its by-product (especially garri) has made this crop even more special. But am not here for description but exposure of realities in this goldmine.

This piece of write up is sincere and backed with experience, therefore only meant for serious mind (with and without cassava experience)
Cassava production is divided into -

- Pre-planting operations 
- Planting operations 
- Post-planting operations 
- Harvesting and
- Storage

PRE-PLANTING OPERATIONS

This entails land preparation which includes clearing, ploughing (optional) and then stumping. Burning is not advisable in agriculture, though local farmers indulge in it. Herbicide application is next.

PLANTING OPERATIONS

Firstly, heaps or mounds are made (this is also optional. reason being that at the difference between the yield of zero heaps or mounds is not much compared to the money spent making it) before planting. The stem is cut and then planted slightly at about 450 angle.

POST-PLANTING OPERATIONS

This include procedures such as weeding, fertilizer application, mulching. Weeding is done as soon as weeds are just emerging. Next is organic fertilizer application (most preferable fertilizer and it is applied just after weeding). Second weeding is also done before maturity.

NOTE- Cassava can cope with a poor soil, but not with weeds

HARVESTING AND STORAGE

Most cassava species mature at about 12 months after planting. Cassava can be processed into so many by-products, but we will be concerned about garri.

BUDGET FOR CASSAVA PRODUCTION BUSINESS PLAN
S/N ITEM QTY/NAIRA QTY COST

1. Renting of land 10,000 1 20,000
2. Cutlass 1000 2 2,000
3. Cassava stem 300 60 bundles 18,000
4. Hand weeder 500 2 1000
5. Land clearing 20,000
6. Packing and burning 10,000
7. Weeding 10,000 Two times 20,000
8. Organic manure 25,000
9. Grinding of cassava 70,000
10. Big bowl 1500 5 7,500
11. Palm oil 88,000
12. Transportation 20,000
13. Harvesting cost 20,000
14. File 1000 2 2,000
15. Frying pan 15,000
16. Frying 80,000
17. Others 20,000
18. Total 438,500 YIELD

A hectares of cassava will yield about 2200 custard plastic.

One rubber plastic at wholesale rate is N800 x 2200 will give N1, 760,000 NET PROFIT N1, 760,000- N438, 500 will give N1, 321, 500 So cassava production to garri isn’t a bad business at all.

OP You are a confirmed Internet farmer.
You know nothing about farming just look at your analysis, for example #88,000 for palm oil for garri processing.
Now Let me educate you on cassava farming business.
Let assume you want to farm on an hectare of land which is 100m by 100m equal to 10,000m square.
Land clearing during the january /February period will cost you 15000 to 25000 depend on the locations.
Next stage is Tilling and Ridges by tractor or manual, but tractor will be much better and will cost you around 20,000 to 30,000 depend on your locations.
Other stages include herbicide spraying and planting of cassava, you will need like 4 litres of herbicides and 50 bundles of cassava stems for 1 hectare of cassava farm which will cause you around 75,000 for proper planting of 1 meter spacing.
It take cause 9 to 12 months to reach maturity stage and it depends on the species.
Harvesting is done by hand and like me I sell by ton no further processing because of time and stress involve.
For an hectare of cassava farm highest I have uproot is about 63 tons about 2 years ago and was sold at 22500 per ton then.
Thanks
cassava farming is very lucrative no magic about it but it take time.

Can you break down the process of fertilizer application so non agriculturalists can comprehend. Second, where person fit see land rent for farming cassava?
Re: Best Cassava Production Plan To Help You Make Money by Opinedecandid(m): 3:38pm On Jun 16, 2017
Well done op, lazy ponzi seekers will desert this thread. Over 30 mins since it came to front page, yet, it hasn't gotten to page 2.
But op,
Hmmm, your analysis on one hecter is not very correct.

Weeding for non-burnt bush will be 3 times.
And Weeding a hecter will definitely cost more than 10k/hecter, no matter the loaction.
The quantity of stems needed to cultivate a hecter will be more than 18k
