Fertile, natural manure rich forest soil is the most ideal for plantain farming. However, experience has shown that plantain grow in a variety of soil profiles in Nigeria.  Locate the article on plantain farming from the blog section of this website and read.

NPK is good for plantain, both first and second application. The optimum K fertilizer that will give the best marginal rate of return was estimated to be 360 kg K ha-1.

Snail farming is as good as any other profitable farming business
