Just follow this thread all the way and you can be assured that i am going to share all you need to know to get started on a high note.
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.
