Learn from 28 years experience of our tOMATO fARMING consultation services

It’s very sad to see people approach farming with little to zero knowledge- or employ wrong hands-and at the end get their fingers burnt. Many invested all their life savings, some took heavy bank loans, burrowed money from other people or use their pension/gratuity- but sadly lose ALL!

Horticultural farming such as tomato farming is not like normal everyday farming. It’s an attention seeking and a  knowledge based farming that requires the right approach in order to get positive results.

We consult and coach in up-to-date farming techniques fitting for our  geography and market.

We also show people how to maximize little space to achieve great results especially through technical density stocking, sustainable farming, urban-farming and vertical farming .

How lucrative is tomato farming?

Tomatoes is highly profitable and could bring wealth within a very short period. 

Take for example tomatoes cultivation on an acre of land should produce between 15tonnes to 35tonnes- 15tonnes being a worst case scenario.

So let’s calculate: in mile-12 market Lagos, Nigeria for example, a 25kg crate of fresh hardy 120g size per fruit of tomatoes sells for N3500 during market glut/surplus period and N12, 000 during scarcity.

We said 15tonnes (15,000kg) is the worst case scenario. Hence,  when you do the math, that’s 600 of 25kgcrates of tomatoes on an acre. At a worst case you sell all 600 crates at 3500 naira, you should realize a gross profit of N2,100,000.  

Note that this calculation is based on when tomatoes is surplus, not scarce and every year it’s certain there would be scarcity of tomatoes for at least for 5-6months straight in Nigeria.

More reasons to go into tomato farming

  • Increased demand for some specific types of tomatoes due to government ban on importation of tomatoes concentrate
  • Increased processing companies in Nigeria
  • Increased collaboration with governmental foreign bodies
  • Increased demand due to population explosion
  • Little knowledge about horticultural farming in the country causing periodic scarcity amidst other reasons.
