Plantain needs a good land preferably soil rich in.nutrients for optimum.growth.
Good land preparation is needed either manual or mechanical.

I personally prefer using tractor to.prepare the land because it is faster, the soil is well prepared and saves time.

If you are cultivating plots of land,manual might be the best for you but not advise to use manual labour on large hectares of land.

After this the second stage is to source for your suckers to plant.

I will show you the 2 types of suckers you can use and the best one for you to make good profit.

These are the 2 kinds of suckers you can use.

Before plantimg is done
Hole is dug of about 10-15cm below the ground surface.
This can be done 2 days before planting.

Suckers are gently lower into the hole and covered.

It is watered 12-24hours after planting with subsequent watering at every 2 days interval.(3 times in a week)
