GROUNDNUT FARMING AND PROCESSING BUSINESS PLAN IN NIGERIA
F&T Foods is one of its kind, producing foods directly from the plants. Groundnut processing is one of the divisions of F&T Foods, and it is located in the Ilero community, behind Aba-iyamedi, Ilawe Road, Ado Ekiti. Though there are other groundnut farms in Nigeria, ours is inimitable because we want to be able to produce freshly processed and contaminant-free groundnut products for our customers. Groundnuts are rich in fat, protein, and many other healthy nutrients. Studies show that peanuts may be useful for weight loss and are linked to reduced threat of heart compliance.
Our top-notch technology allows all nutritional value in the product to be retained, and products are free from chemical and environmental pollutants that can affect the taste, durability, and health of the consumers.
Groundnut requires well-drained, sandy loamy soil with a pH of 6.5 to 7.0, high organic matter, an optimal temperature, and optimum annual rainfall. Groundnut plantation requires average spacing of 75cm x 20cm, or 50cm x 20cm for bunch varieties while spreading varieties can be planted at 100cm x 20cm or 75cm x 25cm. Groundnuts can be attacked by about 100 insect-pest viz, and fungal diseases can also attack the crops. The crop also needs an effective weed control process.
To achieve proper spacing, good germination, vegetative growth, and reproductive growth of our products, our farmland is located in a sparsely populated area with sandy, loamy soil that has the right temperature level where the plant can have direct access to sun, rain, labour, fertilizers, herbicides, and fungicides.
