      Starting a Tomato Farming

      Tomato is one of the most important cooking ingredient in Nigeria. Ninety percent of our food is never complete without tomato. We use it in cooking stews, soups, salads, portages, and virtually every food imaginable in the land. It goes with everything. So good that none of our traditional foods ever rejected tomato. This report explains how to start lucrative tomato farming in Nigeria.

      Benefits Of Tomato Farming

      Health – This wonderful fruit berry is an excellent source of good amount of vitamin C and beta-carotene. Tomatoes deep redness mean it’s a very good source of antioxidant agents. It’s a powerful source of vitamin E and enhance the health and sharpness of the eyes. You can never go wrong with tomatoes as far as nutrition and health is concerned.

      Profit – The market is always there for tomatoes in Nigeria. Why not? A product

      Ripped Tomatoes ready for the market

      that is consumed by close to 200 million people, no amount you produced that will ever going to be enough. In 2012, Nigeria imported 65,809 tonnes of processed Tomato that worth over N11.7 Billion. That was in addition to the massive tonnes produced locally in the North. Tomatoes alone takes out over N100 billion annually from Nigerians!

      What exactly are Nigerians doing that a whooping amount of N11.7 billion has to go to other countries economy for a product that does very well in almost every Nigerian soil? This is a question we need to ask ourselves as we prepare for this year’s farming season.

      If you have N3 million and you invest it in tomato farming this season, you will double that investment within nine months.

      How To Grow Tomatoes

      Tomato farming is very simple. Anyone can do it in any capacity, either in the backyard or in commercial quantity. Growing tomato is much more rewarding than you could ever imagined. Tomato can be grown round the year, especially in places like Kano where there is irrigation system specifically made for it. In other places, it is best cultivated during the rainy season.

      Step 1: (Pick up The Best Species) – The improved yield specie is the best

      High Yield Tomato Variety

      choice for farmers, do not pick the local species. In this case, I will recommend the Roma variety. The Roma tomato known for it’s size and redness is a plum tomato very popular in the Nigerian markets. This specie can be used both for canning and producing tomato paste. It is also commonly found in supermarkets in some countries like the United States. Roma tomatoes are also known as Italian tomatoes, it is also called Italian plum tomatoes.

      What makes Roma specie very unique is it’s long shelf life, it’s hard back, and low water content which enables it to last longer after harvest. A paint rubber of the seed cost about N4,500

      Step 2: (Prepare The Nursery)  – This can be done around March/April when the rain is just beginning in most parts of the country. You can use your backyard for the nursery or any other piece of land the is suitable for it. Tomatoes does very well in most soil types in Nigeria but better in a black loose loamy soil. Prepare the ground by clearing the grasses and rubble, loosen the soil with hand trowel and hoes.

      Remove the seeds from the tomatoes and spread it on the prepared soil. You can cover it with dry grasses to prevent the lose of moisture from the soil and prevent birds ants fowls from eating off the tomato farming seeds.

      Within 5-7days you will see it germinating. Wait till about another five days before you remove the dry grasses to allow for proper growth. Leave it for another one month before transplanting.

      Step 3: (Transplant to The Garden/Farm) – The final journey will be moving it into the permanent farm where they would grow to maturity and production.

      If your farm is too big that you can’t do the transplanting alone, hire laborers according to your need. You need to be careful with the tender plan to avoid breaking it. Transplant is best done with hands for better results.

      SEE ALSO: How To Start Groundnut Oil Production

      Open the soil with piece of small wood, insert the seedling into the hole and cover it with lose soil. Tomato plan is very tender and fragile, it is best transplanted the same day you uprooted it from the nursery to avoid dehydration and fatigue.

      Step 4: (Weed and Apply Fertilizer) – After two months from transplant, it will be time for weeding. Hire laborers to do the weeding while you supervise to ensure that your tomato plants are not damaged during the process of removing weeds.

      Tomato Farming

      After the first weed, it will be time to apply fertilizer to help replenish the soil nutrients taken by the weeds. To grow successfully, tomatoes need nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, potash, calcium, and magnesium, along with other trace minerals. It’s always best to have your soil tested to check for nutrient levels and pH level.

      Use fertilizer that supply those vital nutrients – N-P-K ratio fertilizer can be very good for tomatoes. See types of fertilizers that are very good for tomatoes.

      Step 5: (Harvest Your Tomatoes) – Tomato is harvested in matches, the moment you starts harvesting, you’ll continue on weekly basis till the end of the season, usually it will keep producing till the dry season when the plant will die off due to the scorching heat.

      The first harvest starts within three months after planting. That means if you plan by April, you should be expecting your first harvest to start by June/July. From then, it will continue till November/December.

      Step 6 (Market Your Tomatoes) – It is important to prepare your marketing well ahead of harvesting. Look for who or where to supply the product. This is because, tomato is a perishable product unless you have built storage system.

      Mile 12 is the major market for fresh tomatoes and other vegetables in Lagos. Its purely dominated by the Northerners who majors in this farming, harvesting cash over the years. Why? 90% of vegetables consumed in Lagos are brought in from the North. Virtually nothing is produced in the. South West, South East and South South. Lagos alone has over 15,000,000 million people consuming tomatoes almost on daily basis. So, you can see the potential in the farming business.

      There is need for smart entrepreneurs to see the opportunity for big business and big money in this sector. We have gotten to the point where we need young savvy entrepreneurs to break into this sector and start producing and delivering quality, hygienic tomatoes at very affordable price.

      The mass market remains the key to success in Agribusiness and I would rather sell 1,000 basket a day for N2,000 each than sell just 100 basket a day for N5,000 per basket. The money is in the mass market and we need to start seeing it that way and working that way. Produce more, sell less amount, and make more money.

      If you start preparation now for this venture, you will harvest cash all season. Feel free to ask questions using the comment section and contribute your knowledge to help us all grow in this tomato farming business .

        Apart from the planting drying off by November/ December owing scotching heat, it is possible to get the plants preserved by way of irrigation or wetting. If yes will it still be productive as a normal plant.

But like the last post said; what are the risks and common problems involved with its pre-planting, growth and harvest stages? More so, can you advice the most suitable area/place in Lagos to acquire good soil as you mentioned above? And are there people who in Lagos where one can acquire in form of rent or lease mini farm land to go into this production.

        Thank you sir.

        • Darlinton Omeh January 26, 2016

          There is no much farmland in Lagos as everyone here is concerned about real estate development only. Every land in Lagos is going for real estate, however there are still lands for farming which you can ask from people who are familiar with your area.

        It’s So 🌷🌱 beautiful to farm, if we would found dozens of you and we heed your advise, we would not be foolish undreamed graduates, who does bring their result into action and left our country in vein, but thank God we’re now turning around and I pray it keeps happening, so please how can we get this specie and what about it’s nutritional value over the other varieties. Thanks a lot may God bless you.

        This is simply some of the best material I’ve stumbled on internet in Nigeria. It’s not what I was looking for but it certainly got my attention. Now I’m glad I took the time to look it over. Weldon bro for this wonderful piece. You are a blessing to Nigeria

        Very nice piece indeed…..
        In addition to this wonderful article, I would love to create awareness on the existence of organic pesticides..the type you can do in the comfort of your home . Organic pesticides are used instead of chemical pesticides which contain harmful toxins which degrades soil fertility, contaminates crops and decreases biodiversity. In this new era, consumers are rapidly seeking after organically produced foods and knowing the ways to produce them is very important. To learn more on this, visit:

However, I understand that in order to succeed in the business training is important as it will teach me the basics as well as prepare me for the marketing part. My question therefore is, are there available farms or individuals who can teach me the hands on process of this farming types? If yes, where can I find them in Warri and environs? Thank you. Titilola.
