You'll have to clear the land, till, make beds or ridges planting certified seeds at the recommended spacings. Make sure you use certified hybrid or OPV varieties to get high yields.

Follow up other production practices like irrigation, fertilization/fertigation, pest control, and other agronomic practices.

Step 4. Harvesting and marketing

For sure! you didn't just go into the business for the fun of it but to make money. One unique thing about cucumber which makes it unique is its market value. You will have little or no challenge selling off your cucumber. All you have to do is to inform the local buyers that you have it for sale and have them trooping down to your farm. You can also package your cucumber and retail to malls or friends for more profits.

I wish you a profitable  cucumber farming experience!
