How is rice grown in Nigeria?

This is the question facing us here. As a matter of fact, in practice, rice is grown in Nigeria based on two major systems: direct sowing and transplantation. The two forms differ in aspects such as time of soil preparation, sowing methods and initial water management.

Thus, while in direct sowing, the seeds are distributed directly in the soil, either in the form of dry or pre-germinated seeds, by haul or in rows, in dry or flooded soil, but in the transplanting system, the seedlings  ar produced primarily in nurseries or sowing, before being taken to the final location.

It is worth mentioning that regardless of the soil preparation method used, it will be necessary to plan the surface of the land, to correct the irregularities of the land. This will allow the uniformity of the water depth and the more efficient control of weeds as well as favoring the planting system with pre-germinated seeds.

Direct seeding – Rice Plantation: This is how rice is grown in Nigeria

In the direct sowing system, the seeds are distributed directly into the soil, whether in the form of dry or pre-germinated seed. Thus, rice grown by this technique can reach maturity in seven to ten days before that produced by the transplanted system.

This cycle reduction can be important for areas where successive crops re used and / or have climatic limitations, such as low temperatures. Therefore, direct sowing is the most suitable system for planting irrigated rice in tropical floodplains, as in the riverine state of Nigeria.

Transplantation system

The transplant system is used in Nigeria in small crops, especially in the non riverine regions. In the others, its use is restricted to fields of seed production, mainly in crops where there is no more availability of new areas and those already cultivated that are infested with red rice and voluntary plants.

This system consists of stages of seedling production and transplanting itself and constitutes the most efficient method of controlling red rice.

We can say that it’s an indirect sowing system, in which the rice is initially sown in a seedbed or nursery, in well-prepared soil, and as soon as the seedlings reach an adequate size for transplanting, they are taken to the final field.

In addition, this type of planting is recommended for the production of high quality seeds. Thus, in order to achieve high varietal purity, the technique of eliminating contaminating, atypical plants from the production field, also called purification or “roguing”, is a fundamental practice and becomes easier when the transplanting system is used.

For mechanical transplanting, the seedlings re produced in appropriate wooden or plastic boxes – with a perforated bottom, 5 cm high, and the length and width, according to the transplanting plant to be used.

Already for manual transplanting in one hectare, the equivalent of the daily work of 30 to 40 men is necessary. In the manual method, the seedlings must be transplanted in previously drained areas, when they reach 20 to 30 days, which corresponds to a height of around 25 cm.
