Our Weeding process increases our yield in maize farming by 90%. We at ABTO Limited endeavour to keep our maize farm free of weeds. We ensure that no weed is visible on our maize farm. Weeds share water and nutrients with plants, they can starve crops of the important nutrients they need to grow well. Weeds also harbour pests and diseases which can be transferred to your crops.

Our first few weeks of planting, we ensure that our maize farming determines about 40-50% of the yield of the crop. We strive to have a weed free maize farm this on our farms always. We as a commercial maize farmer, we cannot hand weed our maize farm, we have a decision that it is better we use the recommended herbicides for maize crop. We have decided to use the best pre-emergence herbicides and post-emergence herbicides in the market for our maize farming.


From our research, we have decided strategically to use both inorganic fertilisers and organic fertilisers (manure). We as commercial maize farmer, looking at maize as a crop is a nutrient hungry crop. Our maize crop needs a lot of nutrients especially nitrogen.

Pests and Diseases Management

We have made sure we use all the recommended pesticides and disease control techniques when cultivating maize. The most destructive of all maize pests is the army worm. We are using the best pesticides in the market for army worm before infestation. Remember, in farming, prevention is better than cure.

There are nematicides, fungicides, bactericides, rodenticides, insecticides and acaricides that can be used to manage pests and diseases in maize farming.


We have made sure to insure our maize farms against all forms of insurable risks. We can assure all our customers of a guaranteed maize products through this scheme.

Dry Season Maize Farming in Nigeria

Dry season maize farming in Nigeria is far more challenging than other seasons due to the availability of adequate water. However, there is a catch, the question is how do we get adequate water for our dry season maize farming? Irrigation is the answer; We have provided irrigation facilities for our maize farm in order to reap the benefits of dry season maize farming in Nigeria and also to meet our customer’s need.

Our Irrigation for Maize Farming

We at ABTO have made a strategic decision to use Drip irrigation and sprinkler irrigation which are the appropriate types of irrigation for our maize farming in Nigeria.

Drip irrigation is the best type of irrigation, even though using it may not be justifiable given the low value of maize grains in the market. However, we have made the society needs our priority and by doing this we believe at we will be able to serve and fill a gap in the agricultural industry in Nigeria.
