Melon Farming Part 1


Egusi (Melon)

I will give us little presentation on egusi, on the grounds that we know egusi as one of Africa's significant soup ingredient.


Egusi popularly known as Melon is a plant that looks like the well-known watermelon, both have a non climbing crawling propensity and profoundly cut lobed leaves.


Even-though Watermelon is edible, Egusi has harsh and unpalatable organic product mash, which isn't for consumption.


There is another distinction, the seeds of egusi is typically greater than Watermelon seeds. A reason why Egusi is referred to -by some- as WILD MELON.


Ordinarily modern researchers have put in a lot of effort on finding the best way to improve Egusi and make life easier for farmers in terms of having greater yields at cheaper costs.


In any business, reducing costs is extremely important. Subsequently, we shall be looking at best practices in Egusi farming to achieve great outcomes.


Egusi farming does not always require the addition of Composts or Manure and by this I mean there is usually no need to burn extra cash on fertilizers and manures as is done on other crops; this is a very good way to save in Egusi farming.


While in some cases some handful of compost could be required, this should not be done at the expense of unbearable costs provided. Always start Egusi farming with a relatively small piece of land, as a new farmer, and gain more experience in terms of the dos and don'ts as you progress.


Keep in mind, cultivating is a progressive procedure..
