The Recommended Spacing for Plantain Cultivation

The recommended spacing for planting plantain is 3m between the plantain rows and 2 m within the row (in other words. 3 m x 2 m).

An alternative is 2.5 m x 2.5 m. If spaced 3 m x 2 m, 1 hectare should contain 1667 plants, but with a spacing of 2.5 m x 2.5 m, it should contain 1600 plants.

Rows should be straight in flat fields to give plants the maximum amount of sunlight.

However, on sloping land, rows should follow the contour lines in order to decrease soil erosion.
