My Pepper Planting Challenge by Xwizard: 8:02am On Feb 18
Good morning nairalnders, let’s do a challenge, plant pepper seed in sacks for your backyard and update us here with the growth for encouragement, I promise to start encouraging anyone that plants daily in my
Own way.

If 2m nairalnders and 5m Nigerian youth can do this challenge for just a week, in 3months we would be having abundance of pepper to eat and consume.

Stop complaining, do something, just plant in 50-100 to hundreds sacks at your backyard, wet every morning and move on with your normal daily life. Is that too much to hel ourselves?

Or to crown it all, hit the jackpot, which is cassava, just get one plot of land and plant casssva, that one is on 6month, piaaaaaam you fry am sharp, garri is 1100.

Am already working on 5plot of one wasted land for cassava like this. You know what? It will only cost me just 350k to finish the project till o harvest. No risk, no Tax, no looking for buyer. Just sell or fry am to garri.

Below is my one month planting progress for the pepper.

This only means I will have more than enough pepper and garri and kudi……ego!! En!!! to use this year.

You people better start encouraging farming, that’s only the life saver for us now.
I am graduate, and I’ve never used my certificate to work. Till today I didn’t even cross check if the names were written probably.

I have two plots of land wasting away, is it not too late to start planting?

And how do i get to start, like getting the seed, the fertilizer etc. I don't know much about farming, but I do have interest in this pepper planting of a thing.

Can someone put me through. Plz

Imagine you have access to 100, 000 Congo of garri now.
Do the math

100,000 X 1k
100milion sharp

One plot of land should give you at least 1000 Congo of garri
Then you need just 100 plots of land to chalice that. That’s just about just 2-3hectres of land, which you can lease for just 1m or lesser self.

Am just you, this is my first and it’s never too late to plant either cassava or pepper. Infact this the month to start bushing clearing and burning for casssava.
Planting proper start by March/April, they only need one single rain to drop before they start planting.

For the pepper just get sack or any wasting Bucket you have around and plant from
The seedling you buying from the pepper bought from market.
Dont stress yourselve am also Porch/Pako

This is a good encouragement but I won't advise anybody who wishes to venture into pepper farming to plant in sack. I am a pepper farmer and I have tried planting pepper in sack, the germination and growth was good but the problem started when the pepper started fruiting. I noticed the root of the plant have started perforating the sack, pepper is a perennial crops that takes atlest 3 - 4months before you start harvesting and extra 6-8 months before the plant gets weak of production, during that period of time the sack won't be enough to accommodate the whole root resulting to poor fruiting , the flowers will be falling off, the leaves will be shrinking some time the plant dies off

if you fill the sack to the brim, it will accommodate the roots
Re: My Pepper Planting Challenge by RainMoreDFARMS(f): 12:38pm On Feb 18
I did something of this nature last year, though it wasn't up to 100 bags.
.
Along the line,I had to chicken out, when the stress was Hella much. Potatoes, coconuts, tomatoes, plantains, yams and some other cash crops were there also needing my attention.
.
The shege banga we are currently facing now has resurrected my zeal to start again, this time I am giving my utmost attention to pepper and tomato.

It depends on how many stands you are targeting, for commercial farms it is not advisable because is will increase your farm input.

planting hot pepper in sacks does not work,we tried it with 500 sacks last year and discovered that,it will grow well initially but the moment it grow to big and you harvest like 4-5 times it will stop growing and stop production because the roots do not have anywhere to go again,but you can successful grow cucumbers,melon,okra or sweet pepper in sacks,the root system of hot pepper is too massive for the sack

Sir, please what's the advantage of growing in sacks? have you tried it with yams? can you do mix cropping in sacks? for example planting Mellon or watermelon in the same sack with yam and harvesting the melon early to make space for the yam? what plants grow well in sacks in Nigeria?

At this point, you should transfer it to the field...the sack was only meant to serve as a Nursery aid

I doubt if the sand level can sustain the roots. You should have filled the sack with more sand.
