I planted cassava last year but can't sell cos of low price now. I have over 35 acres of land, still thinking on what to plant there cos cassava I had in mind is no market now. Planning on either planting plantain, palm tree, cocoa, or cashew for long time investment but will be using some potion of it for watermelon and cucumber this year. Also starting fish farming this year too

You are blessed with land. I've always heard about glut with cassava. Try finding a market before you plant anything.

Poultry farming (egg layers). Processsing is the way to go.

You're highly welcome bro. With such land, why not try integrated farming whereby you combine crops and animal husbandary, plus biogas digester.

Thanks Oga. I have passion for farming but don't knw much abt it, when I was buying the land I had cassava in mind but now cassava is not it, am tempted of regretting buying the land but I knw it's an asset in the long run. Talking of integrated farming, I don't knw much, will like partnering on that, so if you knw anybody that know anybody that want farming but no land let him coming for partnership. Thanks
