Hello guys today I’ll be exposing you into pepper farming business in Nigeria and the benefit of starting it as a business.
In the process of researching business opportunities in Nigeria, I have discovered that no one has any good reason to be poor. If you are poor, it’s either because you want to or you’ve not been properly informed.
I’m planting herbanero pepper (Rodo) and jalapeno (bawa)
to get 60k weekly from a pepper farm u will need to have at least 1200 avenir pepper stands and that will be squeezed into 3 plots of land at 4feet× 4feet square spacing,it will start to yield from 100 days in dry weather and 120+ days in rainy season, hybrid fresh pepper is resistant to root knot nematodes, but it will be devastated by bacterial leaf spot and tobbaco etch virus, restricted entrance into the farm most be maintained , especially in the morning when it is wet with dew, spraying a cocktail of contact and systemic fungicide is a must every week, also pepper needs a special fertilizer of Epsom salts and cal-mag fertilizer,if u eventually gets it right you will see production of 5-7 bags every 4 days from a healthy 1200 pepper crop,today’s price for a bag is 7,000k, so the weekly target is achieveable, you must prune your crops once before it forms a Y branch by cutting off the top growing tip this will create a profusion of many branches that will translate to more yield, make the stems stronger and also the plant will not grow too tall.
