Yam farming business is a profitable agribusiness venture which you can start on a medium to large scale. Nigeria is a major producer and consumer of yams, yet we have not sustained production to support exports on a large scale.

Consumer demand for yam is generally very high in Nigeria and yam cultivation is very profitable despite high production costs.

There are a lot of opportunities to be explored to make more money from your yam farming business venture.

*Steps On How To Start Yam Farming:*

1. Acquiring land for farming.

The first step is to acquire land for the yam farming purpose. You should either rent land or you can buy if farmlands are cheap in your location.

You can rent lands by visiting farming communities and looking for the village heads or land owners who want to lease their lands. Do not forget to obtain a written agreement to avoid future problems. You can also rent agricultural lands through your local government secretariat or state's ministry of agriculture.

Note: Be sure that the areas are free from cattle herders problems and ensure you secure your farmland.

2. Land Preparation

The basic land preparation for yam farming is clearing and heaping or ridge making.

Land clearing is usually down before commencement of rains or before rains become steady. This is usually between December to February/March.

Heaping OR ridging is done immediately or done once the rains become steady around March-June.

3. Yam setts or seed yam preparation

-Seed Yams-

-Yam setts-

Yam setts are bigger yam tubers that are divided into smaller units for planting purposes. Seed yams are smaller yams which usually accompany bigger yams during harvest. Seed yams are also gotten during the second harvesting of yams.

When dividing yam tubers into setts make sure they are within 300 to about 600grams. note that, the bigger the yam setts the better the chance of having bigger yam tubers.

Dust or dip your yam setts and seed yams in insecticides or biopesticides like wood ash and/or neem extracts.

4. Planting the yam setts and seed yams

Planting should commence when rainfall is steady and the soil is adequately soaked.

Planting when the rains are not steady requires mulching the heaps to avoid drying and spoilage of planted seed yams.

Planting spacing for yam is normally 1m by 1m which gives 10,000 stands per hectare. However, farmers may work around the spacing to increase stands per hectare depending on the fertility of the soil and scale of production.

5. Yam staking

Once the yam starts sprouting and the yam vines growing, the next thing to do is to stake the yam vines so that they can get more sunlight which will convert to bigger tubers.

Staking increases tuber yield 34-105% over un-staked yam.

Staking could be done using bamboo and ropes of sticks.

6. Weeding the yam farm
Weeding is necessary to prevent competition and stiffening of the yam crop. Weeding should be done manually or using certain selective herbicides like Diuron.

7. Harvesting of yams

Yam takes about 6 to 7 months from planting to harvesting. Harvesting starts around November and can stretch till as far as February.

Harvesting and storing yams

Depending on the variety, yams are harvested 6 to 12 months after planting. Lift the tubers when the leaves and stems turn yellow and dry.
Do not leave the ripe tubers too long in the ground, otherwise they become bitter and may rot.
With some varieties, only one crop is harvested. Others are harvested twice.
At the first harvest, after 6 months, the biggest tubers are lifted.
The second harvest is taken 3 to 6 months after the first.
Or the crop may be harvested as and when needed.

Early varieties, such as lokpa, do not store well. These yams should be eaten immediately after lifting.
Late varieties, such as Dioscorea alata, may be stored for 5 or 6 months.
But they must be kept dry and protected from rats and other rodents.
They should be under a roof, on dry ground or on boards supported on posts.
To prevent rot, the tubers should not be heaped up too much.

Yes, it's yam harvest time. Harvesting big and healthy yam tubers is the delight of every yam farmer. But, remember, it's what you sow that you will reap. If you sow healthy seed yams/yam setts at the right time, with adequate rainfall and sunlight, you are bound to harvest big, huge, multiple and bountiful yam tubers.

The Electoral Act Amendment Bill 2022 has been signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

On Friday, President Buhari signed the bill at the Presidential Villa’s Council Chamber.

Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President; Ahmed Lawan, President of the Senate; and Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the House of Representatives, were all there to witness the signing of the Bill.

In his address, President Buhari said in line with established tradition, he received inputs from relevant ministries, departments and agencies of government after careful and thorough reviews of the Bill and its implications to democratic processes in Nigeria.

He said, “It is gratifying to note that the current Bill comes with a great deal of improvement from the previous Electoral Bill 2021. There are salient and praiseworthy provisions that could positively revolutionize elections in Nigeria through the introduction of new technological innovations. These innovations would guarantee the constitutional rights of citizens to vote and to do so effectively.

“The Bill would also improve and engender clarity, effectiveness and transparency of the election process, as well as reduce to the barest minimum incidences of acrimony arising from dissatisfied candidates and political parties.

“These commendable efforts are in line with our policy to bequeath posterity and landmark legal framework that paves the way for credible and sound electoral process that we would all be proud of.

“Distinguished Senators and Honourable Members of the National Assembly, from the review it is my perspective that the substance of the Bill is both reformative and progressive. I am making this bold declaration because I foresee the great potentials of the Bill. Worthy of note include the democratic efficacy of the Bill with particular reference to sections 3, 9(2), 34, 41, 47, 84(9), (10) and (11) among others.

“This, however, cannot be said about one provision as contained in the proposed Bill, which provision constitutes fundamental defect, as it is in conflict with extant constitutional provisions.

“Section 84 (12) constitutes a disenfranchisement of serving political office holders from voting or being voted for at Conventions or Congresses of any political party, for the purpose of the nomination of candidates for any election in cases where it holds earlier than 30 days to the National Election. The section provides as follows: “No political appointee at any level shall be voting delegate or be voted for at the Convention or Congress of any political party for the purpose of the nomination of candidates for any election”.

“This provision has introduced qualification and disqualification criteria that ultra vires the Constitution by way of importing blanket restriction and disqualification to serving political office holders of which they are constitutionally accorded protection.

“The practical application of section 84(12) of the Electoral Bill, 2022 will, if assented to, by operation of law, subject serving political office holders to inhibitions and restrictions referred to under section 40 and 42 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

“It is imperative to note that the only constitutional expectation placed on serving political office holders that qualify, by extension as public officers within the context of the constitution is resignation, withdrawal or retirement at least 30 days before the date of the election.

“Hence, it will be stretching things beyond the constitutional limit to import extraneous restriction into the constitution on account of practical application of section 84(12) of the bill where political parties’ conventions and congresses were to hold earlier than 30 days to the election.

“Arising from the foregoing, with particular regards to the benefits of the Bill, industry, time, resources and energy committed in its passage, I hereby assent to the Bill and request the Nationally Assembly to consider immediate amendments that will bring the Bill in tune with constitutionality by way of deleting section 84(12) accordingly.”
