this is a challenge that we at meglee farms is ready to tackle
we have the good soil,organic manure,fungicides,cu 999 cucumber seeds and also this the season when a bag of cucumber sells for more than 5000 naira,we have the motivation to plant 1500 carefully managed cucumber crops on 1 plot of land that will yield an average of 8 -10 fruits before it dies.we are currently averaging 5-6 fruits per plant,our new philosophy this dry season is quality management not quantity.one bag of cucumber contains from 60-75 fruits if it is cu 999 because of its big size.the land has been prepared,the seed is down and irrigation is in place.can we crack the holy grail of cucumber cultivation??lets find out together step by step info will be posted from day one to last day of harvesting.

My best friend of many years called me and told me to convert a landed property to cucumber farm. That if I invest 200k, I will make 1milla. Harvests are done every 6 weeks, That I need just land and source of water ( borehole)

I told her to get the full details

I am having problems uploading the pics ,we will plant tomorrow and hopefully we will have some pics,we are on a budget of 40.000 naira to manage 1500 crops for 45 days.we have spent so far #8000 seed,#1000 manure nearby poultry farm,#3500 bag of rope for staking,2 Haifa npk#3800,2 saaf fungicide#2000,10 satchets ridomilgold#3800 and 3 imiforce #3000.this is the material to see the project through.note we will not use inorganic fertilizer because anytime we use it losses of 5-10 percent occurs,a nearby poultry farm flushes it wastes away so we go organic with weekly sprays of Haifa bonus foilar fertilizer for micro nutrients the remains balance will be reserved for fuel for pumping water,but so far eedc is giving us light.can we work with this budget even to me it looks impossible but my late father use to tell me nothing venture nothing hard!

cu 999 Thai agro ltd check their Facebook page,we have tried every seed that is available from marketer,supermarkerter,point set,marketmore.murano,murano2f1.Tokyo,Nagano,monalisa,greengo,be it alpha,Indian and even local variety but cu 999 is the biggest,baddest and most profitable u can find,it is so flexible and adaptable that a beginner can plant it and profit from it.I remembered once we planted murano 2f1 it came out with a ratio of 1 male flower to 500 female flowers,then we have to drive to another farm that has cu999 variety pluck the abundant male flowers and then rush back to hand pollinate the murano,it was crazy!

today was hectic we harvested 120 bags of cucumber from our farm in the bush,the land mass is 20 plots fully ridged and staked,it was only possible because of our pathnership with eagle foods processing ltd they have very deep pockets and limitless quantity of poultry litter from their numerous megafarms,the total no of crops cannot be verified but we planted 15 satchets of seed each one containing average of 1700-1800 seeds,the target is 1000 bags with this harvest today we are hitting 680 bags in 5 harvest,how many times can we still harvest?can we make 1000 bags? these are all interesting questions that only time will answer but all I know is that on Monday we will start having pics,come hell come high water.

half plot is small,if u believe and depending on ur location eg good soil,water source very important,source of bamboo staking and 1 plot is okay for a beginner..50,000 can do that if u are ready to do 70% work yourself.

I am not saying that we have gotten that target before,but I believe we can get that yield with good agricultural practice,chia Thai is claiming that their variety will give 10-15 fruits,but we only need 8 fruits per plant to get 100 bags,current price now is #4,000 and rain is still falling,during December when the crops will come out u can imagine what it will be,NB we sell around okigwe,ekwulobia,awka,umunze and Onitsha axis.

there are some cucumber varietys that are best left for the experts murano2f1,greengo,darina,etc .these crop are pure gynoceious species with high ratio of female to male flower,the ratio is high in some that every leaf comes with a female flower,why will it be left for the experts?(1)male flowers are viturally non existant so poor or even no pollination will occur,(2)because it is bio engineered for high incredible yields you cannot fertilize it using conventional means,it can only be done with drip irrigation and daily fertigation,we have even cracked the pollination part by planting a simple monoceious variety like markerter 2weeks than u plant the high yield type in the same farm,so when the high yield female will come bees will have male flowers around for good pollination,but the fertilization part stopped us,these variety has incredible high yields that it is almost impossible to fertilize,the rate the crops uses nutrients is far more than its ability to suck it from the soil so u have yellow leaves and many aborted fruits,I believe with drip fertigation and foliar fertilization this varierties can yield 20-25 fruits,but we will tackle it next year,hopefully our friend saliu bello our raingun suppler will be around for the drip kit.

Cu 999 can keep fresh for 10 days if stored in a cool dry place but the other high yielding types do not last long max 4 days due to its high fertilizer diet

@op, when do u apply insecticide and fungicide
insecticides should not be applied speculatively on cucumbers you only use when u see signs of insect attack like cucumber bettle,leaf foot bug(the black nuisance) leaf miners and aphids these are common cuke pests that u can easily see the damage then use these insecticides because of low toxicity to bees,laraforce gold,actara,imiforce,aceta force,storm force.these are all systemic no nonsense insecticides,but if the crop is fruiting and bees are foraging use only actara very low toxicity to bees,spray a mixture of saaf fungicide(mancozeb+carbendazim) and ridomil gold(metexyl mefemoxen+copper sulphate) every week,I don't know of any cucumber disease that can survive the onslaught of these 4 active ingredients.

Sorry, I had to quote the first write up... But 8-10 fruits per seed, is that an average? Cos t sounds too small to me. Why didn't you go for Murano, which produces faster

(I planted Tokyo though)

For your manure, did u prepare the compost first, before applying? I applied directly while mixing the soil with ash, n I'm guessing that accounted for the death of some of the seeds planted (later learnt that the heat produced by the poultry could kill the seeds)

I'm planning on buying organic fertilizers n pesticides from organicfoods next time I plant

Also, since u r going sack farming, u didn't include cost of getting people to bag the soil for u... Or did u do t yourself?

the 500 bags was filled with soil September last year we planted cukes in it 3 times before the bags became brittle then we transfers the same soil to new set of bags September this year and planted the current crop but we put organic manure 3 times in lifespan of any crop planted,but for the new experiment we will put one cup of poultry manure soaked in water for 4 days in the bags every week to see if the yield will increase

we use fresh poultry litter from battery cages and soak it in water for 4 days,it will not burn the crops but if the mixture touch's leaves it will scorch the area it touched because of high nitrogen content.

Yeah, my cement bags started tearing after a while sef. Considering his long t takes for organic waste to release its nutrients, won't t affect the plants, e.g cukes that round up their life cycle in 40days tops
