On level land where the soil is compact, deep ploughing is needed to improve aeration and water filtration, whereas on a sloping terrain minimum tillage is advised as well as contouring of rows to minimize erosion. Planting is best done at the end of the dry season and beginning of the wet season for adequate initial moisture and to avoid water logging of the young plants.
However, some consideration has been given to manipulation of planting dates to avoid dry season (completely dry soil)
Best Time to Plant
(February to April)
To achieve this, it is suggested that plantings be made only in the first or second weeks of July, September, November and December. Generally, the Plantain requires 10 to 12 months from planting to harvest.
