The planting season is here; it implies that farmers are ready to plant and some have even planted. One of the crops that are commonly cultivated in Nigeria during rainy season is Plantain. The plantain plantation is best established during the rainy season.
Plantain is one of the economically important crops in Nigeria; it is widely consumed and a major component of sumptuous delicacies. Plantain cultivation is a huge investment, thus, requires in-depth knowledge too. Truly, it is very profitable but can be disastrous if not properly cultivated. The success of any farm lies on many factors; every stage of the production process counts because individual practice would have its effects manifest at the long run.
There are basic prerequisites or factors you have to know before delving into plantain cultivation; these prerequisites or factors are cogent and will salvage your production from the beginning to harvesting period. These factors are:
- Selection of banana suckers.
- Soil testing
- Land preparation
- Planting techniques
- Weed control
- Pest and diseases management.
All these factors are very important and need crucial attention. To treat all these duly, I recommend this material as it discusses extensively how to manipulate these factors to enhance production and have a good farming experience.
