Successful Entrepreneur / Pig Farming: Success Story Of Anna Phosa by ikoiikenna: Last month on Fri 19 at 10:28pm
Studies show that pork (pig meat) is the most widely consumed meat in the world, followed by poultry and beef. The value of trade in pig products around the world runs into billions of dollars every year and Africa enjoys less than 5 percent of this action. Although pig farming hasn’t really picked up in Africa like other parts of the world, a few entrepreneurs are already exploring the benefits of this enterprise.

Anna Phosa is one of Africa’s well-known pig farmers. Anna Phosa was an ordinary entrepreneur who made a livelihood from her small vegetable farming business in Soweto, South Africa before she was introduced to pig farming by a close friend and instantly developed a liking for the venture.


In 2004, Anna invested 1,000 Rand (about $100) to buy four pigs which she used to start up her own small pig farm. A little less than four years later (in 2008) Anna was contracted by Pick ‘n Pay, the South African supermarket and retail giant to supply its stores with 10 pigs per week. This rapidly grew to 20 pigs per week shortly after.

In 2010, Anna signed a breathtaking contract with Pick ‘n Pay to supply 100 pigs over the next five years under a 25 million Rand deal (nearly 2.5 million US Dollars!)

With a contract in hand, Anna received funding from ABSA Bank and USAID to buy a 350-hectare farm property. From just four pigs, her new farm now holds nearly 4,000 pigs at a time and supplies roughly 100 to 120 pigs a week to retailers in South Africa and currently employs about 20 staff

Agriculture / Re: How To Start A Profitable Groundnut Farming Business by Ikoiikenna: Last month on Mon 01 at 08:10am
ozome15:
When is the second planting season start for someone that didn't meet up with the first planting season. Thank u


I will like to know the state you reside. However, the Second Time to plant is in August to be harvested in December if you live anywhere in swampy areas (I mean where waters sprout out of the soil or where irrigation is possible). This is because harvesting the seconding planting in dry land is a big job. It will make you suffer. So plant the second if you live around such water area.

Agriculture / How To Start A Potato Farm Business by Mhzik: Last month on Mon 01 at 07:42am
Do you have a land wasting away and you are wondering what to do with it or the kind of crop to grow in it ; while not consider growing potatoes there, who knows, growing potatoes might just be what you are looking for.

Potato is among the most popular vegetables today. It is great for frying, boiling, mashing, for salads and for baking. There are over four hundred varieties of potatoes in the world and to start your own potato farm, you need to choose the variety that best suit your farm land. The best way to know which variety to grow on your farmland, carry out research among potato farmers within your area.

Ask questions, know what works best in their Soil and how to properly grow and cultivate potatoes. Aside from knowing which variety to grow, it will also help to know where to market your products after harvest.
This article will guide you on what you need to know in order to start your own potato farm.
Read on.
Potatoes

PREPARE YOUR FARMLAND
To prepare your farm, you need to clear, plough, trill and drain the soil. You can hire workers to help you in those aspects, they will assist in putting a good amount of manure which will automatically improve the soil texture.

SEEDS
Once you decide on the type of potato to plant, buy certified seeds from commercial suppliers and plant them. Make sure to space out each Seed from the other when planting them.

APPLY FERTILIZER
After planting your seeds, you can wait for about three to four weeks before applying fertilizer. Use some comfrey leaves to fertilize the soil, wilt them for a day and place them at the bottom of the trench and cover the plant with a small amount of soil.

HERBICIDE AND INSECTICIDES
One major factor that adds to successful potato farming, is the effective management control of diseases and insect infestation, using herbicide and insecticides.
Potato farmers apply insecticides when the plants starts growing to drive away flying insects and pests. Farmers apply herbicide or insecticides by sprinkling or spraying irrigation systems while making sure the liquid does not contaminate ground water.

HARVESTING
Once the potato leaf or plant starts showing brown and withering, you will know that your potatoes are ready for harvesting. Ensure to dig them up before the ground becomes hard to prevent too much hard work.

STORAGE AND SALES
After harvesting, keep your potatoes in storage and lay them out on the sun the next day, repeat this for three (3) days ; after which the potatoes will become more mature and dried. You can take them back to storage and go seek out dealers in the market place and sell to them for a profit.

Agriculture / Re: How To Start A Profitable Groundnut Farming Business by ozome15: 04:10pm On 4 Apr
ikoiikenna:
Groundnut is a crop that is high in demand because it\'s very useful in the economy and proteinous for the body. Groundnut can be used to make varieties of other product such as peanut butter, chocolate candy, groundnut cake, groundnut oil, peanut butter etc. Groundnut takes about four(4) months to mature and can be cultivated twice in a farming season.
Let\'s look at the steps to take to start a lucrative groundnut farm business. You need to first;

Purchase a Farm Land
You can get a good plot of land on the outskirts of town for a good price of about ₦300,000 (this applies to most states in the country). Get a Farm Land, seek the service of one or two locals and pay them to help clear and drain the land.
Groundnuts

Till the Soil
You can either do it yourself and save some money or you hire workers to do it for you for a token.


Purchase Seed
Once you have gotten your farmland cleared and well-drained, the next step is to purchase groundnut seeds. You can always get groundnut seeds to buy at the market if you don\'t have any. The number of Seed you will buy depends on the size of your farmland. You can get seeds for about ₦500 depending on which part of the country your land is.

Plant Your Seeds
Best time to plant your groundnut seeds is in March when there must have been rainfall on the land. When planting, give space for at least 30cm for each Seed to yield a good crop.

Weeding
Wedding occurs when the plant starts growing after four weeks. You can clear unwanted plant growing around the groundnut and still use it to serve as natural fertilizer for the plant.

Cultivating
If you plant in March, harvesting should be around June or July if you want the groundnut to mature very well. If all goes well, you should be able to harvest about 100 large bags of groundnut.

Storage and Sales
Once you are done the harvesting, the final step is to store the groundnuts in a cool and dry place. Your next assignment is to find out how much a bag of groundnut is sold in the marketplace.
Let\'s say a bag of groundnut sells at the price of ₦5,000 and you have a hundred(100) bags harvested. So ₦5,000×100 -- ₦500,000
Subtract other expenses made and the money invested, your profit will still be a reasonable amount.

And this is only for the first three to four months, imagine what you will make in the other quarter of the year; this is not a bad investment I must say. So what are you waiting for? Get started!
