Watermelon Farming

Watermelon farming is one of the most lucrative agribusiness in Nigeria because it gives an incredible return on investment. One of the major reasons watermelon is in high demand in Nigeria is its high nutritional value and high yield. Watermelon is very rich in vitamins C and A.

Watermelon can be grown in a wide range of soils as long as there are good drainage and adequate fertility. Watermelons grow best on non-saline sandy loam or silt loam soils. Sandy soils have limited water-holding capacities and must be carefully irrigated and fertilized to allow for high yield potential. The soil should have a pH of 5.8 to 6.6 and rich in organic matter with moderate soil moisture.
