Maximizing Profit In Tomatoes Farming.

A single seed of Tomato in a Greenhouse can yield upto eight to ten kgs(with good management) Typical examples are Roma and UC amongst others, this is currently in greenhouses in Nigeria.

A single plant yields an average of eight Clusters, each cluster having an average of ten plus fruits and each fruit with an average weight of one hundred and fifty to two hundred and ten grams that means you will get fourteen.four kgs per single seed planted.

For definitely every thousand successful seeds you definitely get almost one thousand four hundred and fourth kgd or fourteen.four tons however it will certainly drop due to increase in population and other factors.

A Quick Calculation.

The average price for tomatoes is three hundred naira/kg multiplied by the output per plant, which then means on every plant you are harvesting four thousand three hundred and twenty naira And for thousand plants you then get a Gross income of +four.three million naira

Hence there are other cost in running the farm, ranging from water to fertilizer, which doesn't cost more than than a million excluding cost of greenhouse, but input will be low due to its a greenhouse for a thousand plants.

In greenhouse you can fully utilize the genetic potential of your seed.

Theories! Theories!! Theories!!!
Did you tell them about the costs of seeds/seedlings or are they going to use the determinate hybrid seeds to hit this dream amount?, irrigation, construction/maintenance of the greenhouse/nethouses due to damages, the cost of acquiring UV treated cover for the greenhouse nko?
Are they using cheap NPK like the open field farmers?
You never told them how to structure their business so they can sell per kg, when disaster strikes like it does, that their million naira investment is off. You did not tell them why we have so many abandoned greenhouses in this country, just the millions they will make. How many of this greenhouses/nethouses have you installed and run successfully?

am sure you didn't read the part where it says that it's a personal study, the same reason I stopped publishing my finding in agriculture, they are to guild you, of course you are to factor in stuffs like construction etc, I didn't say you are to be a millionaire overnights, beside you will factor stuffs like cost of movement, spoliage etc and you don't expect me to publish a finding of 6months, and several failures and success in a space of twenty lines, ask me what did I do to arrive at the result not telling me other wise bro.

They aren't local veriaty ma. You know you don't calculate (to me), from sees, because not all seeds germinate, so if I tell you hundred grams will work(which is more than enough), but depending on your seeding experience, and finally it comes in hundred grams tin, which is over five thousand seeds (I haven't sat down to count the seeds as they are quite small).

op thanks for ur time,
i really appreciate
but please i just read up there about determinate and not been determinate,
the thing is i dont want a situation whereby the seeds after been planted reaches maturity period but refused to produce tomato fruits,
we experienced this so many times in our tomato growing jorney and it seems to deter us from even growing it more,
thats why i have been looking for ways to get hybrid seeds,
or am i mistanken on this that the tomatoes will grow well and produce fruits?
Thanks

As for your tomatoes not fruiting there may be several factors, but the veriety am talking about is a determinate, but when grown in a green house exhibit the characteristics of an inderminate, as I said earlier, I can't write six months experience in just twenty lines

in my own little knowledge, (masters in the house), determinate as the name implies is a veriety that it's life span could be predicted, from planting to flowering, these are the veriety that we plants and they say within three to four months, while the other hands indeterminate you cannot predict it, the life span maybe from five months or six months, once did a project in Bauchi state with indeterminate veriety "Listra F One, we where harvesting, but during the second months herds men struck so we ran for our life.... Since then I haven't gotten that veriety again.

op it seems you have really gone far on this tomato growing journey.

I tought the determinate and the indeterminate is whereby usefull insects helps to pollinate them, while the other wont need any insect polination for it to produce tomatoes,
op is this true in anyway?

Well, if I am to contribute, seed selection in tomato farming is just a start. Success is tomato is basically a function of the following;

1. Knowing when to plant
2. Tomato land preparation practices
3. Basal application of organic manure (I am pro organic)
4. Recommended spacing for your chosen variety. (Whether hybrid or opv)
5. Irrigation
6. Weed management
7. Use of safe/effective pesticides/fungicides
8. Staking methods depending on tomato type grown .
9. And harvesting...

For me, any variety works just fine.

@op the above mentioned varieties ain't hybrids.

thank you very much sir,
it seems you have done tomato farming before and you seem to know it all

but i just plan on growing them in containers and buckets added with manure inside the bags,
i hope this will work out well
