Crop Farming at Xtreme Returns Farms
In modern times, crop farming is intensive and involves the industrialized production of crops. Presently we produce two crops: Maize and Cassava
Our maize farm is setup on 220 Hectares and this requires the use of mechanized tools especially during planting. Any well drained sandy loam or loamy soil can be used for planting maize.
During land preparation, due to the fact that large scale planting is used, the clearing method ensures preservation of the topsoil.
Once the land is prepared, the hybrid maize seeds are planted immediately to allow them get ahead of any weeds.
Xtreme Returns Farms uses Oba Super 4 maize seeds, purchased from Premier Seeds Limited.
Upon harvest, the product is packaged into bags and you can purchase from our store.
Cassava production is a relatively simple practice. The cuttings of the plant (stems) are placed in trays filled with soil and they turn into big bushes in as little as six months. Without guessing, once the leaves start turning yellow, this is a signal that it’s time to harvest.
The cassava bulbs are then dug from the soil and can be either sold or eaten. Asides the bulbs, the green leaves also double as spices.
We use the TME 419B breed of cassava because of its advantages.
Starting a crop farm is both an art and a science. If you are interested in starting a crop farm in Nigeria or elsewhere, you can simply model what we do.
Your location determines the success of your crop. Crop farms are best located in rural settlements, where land and labor costs are low. There must also be a good transport and road network as well as water access. Your farm should also not be far away from your abode so you can manage the daily affairs. Once your cost of capital is met, you can use structures and equipment for a more extended period of time to scale. Even if you are a new farmer, you can rent equipment. The equipment used for a starting a crop farm in Nigeria is relative to what your budget can accommodate and what your goals are. Are you ready to start a crop farm? Contact us today.
