  2. 2. Plantain and banana sucker multiplication is a highly profitable Agrobiz with lower risk, low cost of production, simple management practices and a long term biz that pass from generation to generation 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP 2
  3. 3. Conditions that should be met to achieve better yield: • The climatic condition of your area of interest. • Source of your planting materials. • The Land status must be put into consideration. • Selecting the site. • preparing the field. • Mapping out of the field to achieve better spacing. • selecting and preparing the suckers. 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP 3
  4. 4. Steps in Planting The Suckers. Step 1. • Obtain hybrid and healthy sucker from an actively growing plant. 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP 4
  5. 5. Step 2. • Wash off soil and peel off the roots to make it free from weevil or nematode. • you can treat with hot water( optional). 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP 5
  6. 6. Step 3. • Map out the field in your pattern preferably 3*3 meters spacing. • Note: This depends on the availability of suckers and the fertility of the soil.it could be lesser. 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP 6
  7. 7. Step 4 • Dig a hole of about 2.5 feet depth. 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP 7
  8. 8. Step 5. • Apply fertilizer or poultry manure (preferably) into the hole, mix with small soil and fill to the middle of the hole. • Leave it open for about 3 days to allow rain into it or use artificial irrigation. 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP 8
  9. 9. • Put in your plantain sucker into the hole and cover with the soil you dug out from the hole, fill it up and heap soil under it. 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP 9
  10. 10. Managerial Measures: In the first six months of the plant, proper attention should be given to the plant so as to make sure weed does not take over the field. • Apply another manure after the first weeding • You can visit the field once or twice a month depending on your availability. • Clean manually mostly with cutlass and not hoe so as not to destroy the plant. • Mulching should be encouraged during dry season for this will help to reduce transpiration and the same time increase the soil nutrient. • During fruiting, prop your plant to prevent it from lodging. • Harvesting is done from ten to twelve weeks after flowering. This should be done timely to avoid being perished or destroyed by birds. 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP 10
  11. 11. Note: • A plot of land measuring about 500 Sqms can take about 72 suckers with spacing of 3*3 meters (10*10 feet). Cost Analysis: • Cost of production/sales. • Cost of sucker = 300 Naira each ( Hybrid) Plot of 500 sqms takes about 72 suckers. • 72*300=21,600 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP. 11
  12. 12. • Manure Application. • 25kg feed bag of manure= 200 naira per bag. • 18 bags to be used before planting, I.e. 1 bag for 4 suckers. • 18 bags to be used after first wedding, I.e. 1 bag for 4 suckers. Total number of poultry dung is 36 bags. • 36*200=7200. 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP 12
  13. 13. -Cost Analysis: • General Labor(planting, weeding and manuring)=10,000. • Transportation (poultry dungs and suckers )= 6000 • Miscellaneous= 2000 • Total cost= 46,800. • A bunch of hybrid plantain sells for 1200 to bulk buyers. • A bunch of banana sells for at least 2000 to bulk buyers. Assuming 30 suckers of plantain and 42 suckers of banana was planted. Then 30*1200= 42000. • 42* 2000= 84000. • Sum= 42000+84000 =126000 • Profit= 126000-46,800= 79,200. 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP 13
  14. 14. At the end of the first planting season, a profit of about 77200 naira is expected. It increases in Subsequent seasons because there will be no need to buy suckers, the suckers multiply and one can start selling them or expand further. Then you won't plant again for other seasons but can apply some manures if you wish. Each stand might bring more 5-7 suckers. One can also transplant to more other plots if available. 9/26/2020 YOUTH ALIVE FELLOWSHIP 14
