Vegetable farming is a very lucratieve one, over the years, alot
of people have undermined this lucrative farming business,
thereby chosing Poultry Farming over vegetable farming.
But I tell you the truth, vegetable farming is quit more
profitable compare to poultry farming.
The profit of vegetable farming increase during the dry season
and as a farmer, you don't need to depend on only one source
of income.
Vegetable farming is the latest agriculture many people run
into, alot of married women have quit their bank jobs and start
vegetable farming.
Going into vegetable farmng, you will only spend less time
since they are not animals or birds that needs lot of attention.
In this article I will be revealing to us how to go about
vegetable farming business.
There are different types of vegetable, but in this article we
will be limited to two vegetables which are pumpkin known as
Ugu and jutes leaf known as ewedu.
The beautiful part of this farming is that you can start your
vegetable farming anywhere, even in your backyard, unlike
animal and birds that you will have to practice biosecurity.
Before going into vegetable farming, you will need to disinfect
all the needed tools, to avoid penetration of germs when
The first thing to do when chosing vegetable farming is to get
a fertile land, clear the bush and apply any chemical that you
know will kill the grass to disinfect.
How to disinfect with chemical: Get a chemical, you can use
paradox, add the chemical to water and use knapsack sprayer
to disinfect it, the purpose of using paradox to disinfect is to
kill the stubborn grass. In other to allow the vegetable to grow
Next is to get a manure from poultry farmers, allow it to dry
then use chovel to sprinkle, ensure it is a solid manure, you
can also use the manure fresh If you don't want to go through
the stress of drying first.
The reason I recommend dry manure is because it works very
fast after spraying it on the soil.
Since the main purpose of going into vegetable farming is to
make profit, you will need to use hoe and divide the land into
beds for planting of vegetables.
The reason for this is for you to know how many bed you plant
vegetables and also for record purpose, record is significant in
all business for reference purpose.
After dividing the land into beds, you will need to ridges the
land for planting of vegetable seeds, now get the Ugu seed
and plant.
Note: you can make it dry or plant it fresh.
If it is jutes leaf known as ewedu in Nigeria Western part, that
you want to plant, get the seed, put small water in fire make it
warm and put the jutes seed into breathing sack, pure the
warm water on the seed and allow the water to dry for for like
48 hours before planting, the purpose of this process is for it
to grow fast.
pumpkin leaf do
grow fast like 26 days and you will harvest it and make your
profit, but jutes leaf grow within 1 and half month before you
can harvest.
It is not advisable to plant both leaf together because it brings
fungal disease or insect, insects eats green vegetables before
it will be ready to harvest.
Note if you are going into vegetable farming during dry season,
you will have to practice Irrigation, irrigation is the artificial
way of passing water to the crop in other for them to continue
Water is very important to plant.
