Great job you are doing here. I prayed may the Lord crown your efforts with favour beyond your labour.
Pls, how do you wet (watery) your seedlings in the nursery trays? Have heard people saying you have to break seed dormancy. Pls kindly explain how you soak seed before planting.
Thanks.
water inside wetin can, then wet like Gardner use to. I don't know the meaning of seed dormancy.i don't soak it, I just sow it inside cocopeat or you do raise bed.

Good job op. Considering those height, Did you prune them?
I cut lowest leaf of about 100 stand when they are still young, the result is at least four branches which later turn bushy ( I can bearly walk through those row) I stop it immediately I noticed it.

This is so true, people with low budgets jump up to cultivate acres in Vege farming and before they get halfway, funds are not available anymore!

True....The tomato root disease was a hindrance.
Re: Step By Step Improve Way Of Cultivating TOMATOES by Farmerakinloye6(m): 9:30pm On Jun 05, 2020
This are the disease I know that affect TOMATO and the deadly one is fungi. 1. Curling leaf,it not that dangerous,I think it is cause by too much heat and a way TOMATO can preserve water. 2.turning too small and discontinue to grow. 3.namatode which attack the root and kill the whole stand, it can be prevent by treating the soil before transplanting. 4. Fungi, the deadly one, it can not be cure but manage. This are the way I think you can manage it,cut the leaf that are touching ground, spray fungicide at Least once in a week and anytime Rain Fall, and one effective chemical I strongly suggest you should have before going into commercial tomato farming is ORTIVA TOP ( #10000) you will be alternateing it with saaf and any insecticide. 5.If you are planting high breed don't stake your TOMATO be sure you have invite the fight, failure and fungi, rodent,bird.. smile. Once your tomato leaf is turning to purple no for sure it is stress and can't reach it full potential. Farmer in the house ,pls add your own and let make Nigeria Great!

Look for varieties that favour the climatic conditions as at the time of planting! Some disease resistance are dry/wet season dependent, so I repeat, look for cultivars that favour the season you are in and the part of the country at the time of cultivation

Re: Step By Step Improve Way Of Cultivating TOMATOES by Nobody: 10:07am On Jun 06, 2020
5k is it not small for that big crate or the price is still manageable
Re: Step By Step Improve Way Of Cultivating TOMATOES by gabolak(m): 8:46pm On Jun 06, 2020

How much in total were you able to make?

Did you make enough profit to compensate for the effort and resources invested?

even if the crate is sold at 3k there will still be a meaningful profit. Almost 3 crate is one basket..do the math
