POTENTIAL OF OIL PALM FARMING AND ITS FINANCIAL IMPLICATION /ACRE


Growing oil palm tree could be one of the best investment and retirement plan for you now that you are actively working or still in service .The main focus is that by the time you are due for retirement the oil palm tree plantation will be mature to become productive within 3 to 4 years after farm establishment.Oil palm tree is more productive in the entire Southern states of Nigeria and they also perform well in the North central part of Nigeria .Oil palm tree product such as palm oil has one of the highest demand locally and internationally and if done on large scale it has the potential to earn the country foreign exchange and increase Nigeria's GDP on the macro economy levelĀ  .



If you are a civil servant ,business owner and even a student , oil palm farming is one of the lucrative agro investment with low risk factor you can put your money into .it is a long term project that creates generational wealth however it is never a get rich quick farming scheme .the cost of setting up and oil palm farm is reduced if one owns a farmland in the village or one as already bought the farmland before the project is conceived .


Since the discovery of crude oil in Nigeria the cultivation of oil palm tree as decline tremendously and so badly that Nigeria as become a mono-economy nation and with the current economic challenges that bedevilled this nation which cause decline in the value of naira it is high time we should go back to the cultivation of this cash crop as a means to diversity the economy of this nation and earn forex .As a private business owner,civil servant and cooperate organisation there is no better time to own an oil palm plantation than now .

An acre oil palm tree is capable of yielding between 400 to 600 litres of palm oil .However yield is determined by several factors such as farm management and geographical location interms of weather and rainfall .hence the farmer should lower his yield expectation during the first year harvest to 400 litres .

Great topic , I will like to know a little more about it .

First in time of lands, what type of land is good for the palm trees

Secondly , how do we secure the area from invaders

Thirdly . What state are you from ? And do your state or area have lands that are available for these . Thanks

The oil palm tree will do well in sandy loamy soil .if you can support it with manure it will help the plant to be more productive .

It is very hard to steal from an oil palm tree however you should provide some level of security against theft .


I am from kwara state .There are farmlands available to cultivate oil palm trees in my region
