Cabbage currently sells for N5,000 per bag of about 100kg.
75 heads of big size cabbage will fill the bag.
100 heads of average size will fill the bag
Cabbage matured between 85_90days including transplanting.
A raised bed will produce minimum of 200 cabbage heads
An acre will produce minimum of 16,000 cabbage.
By peak starting from December, the same bag of cabbage will sell for N10,000 or more
Like Yinka Adesola always write, it’s easy calculating on paper.
It’s hard putting in the work.
You can only achieve this if you are determined and put everything in place to be successful
Everything still boils down to practising and navigating the difficulty
Welcome to dry season.
