What to plant? (Jan - Mar)

If you are not sure what to plant over the next 2 months, then maybe this analysis will help you.

Last year during the period of April - June, the market was saturated with the following vegetables:

  1. Butternut
  2. Green Bean
  3. Broccoli
  4. Cauliflower
  5. Baby Gem
  6. Cabbage
  7. Green Pepper
  8. Lettuce
  9. Sweet Potato
  10. Tomato

The vegetables listed above are ideal when planting in the 1st quarter of the year, but could potentially offer reduced returns due to high market availability (high supply).

If you are looking for alternative vegetables:

  1. Red Cabbage
  2. Spinach
  3. Garlic
  4. Onion
  5. Pumpkin
  6. Beetroot
  7. Carrot
  8. Pea
  9. Celery
  10. Turnip

Talk to your regional extension officer to get his/her take on these vegetables.
