Growing cabbages in Botswana

Today i am going to talk a bit about growing cabbages here in Botswana as a source of income. and the reason for growing cabbages over other vegetables such as tomatoes is really very simple. 1 cabbages are very hardy and do well in most of the soils found here in Botswana. 2 cabbages are a popular vegetable and so you will have a market as soon as you harvest. 3 cabbages are ready for harvesting in three months and under and that means that you will be able to get more sets of crops from your land per year then you would if you were growing onions or some other vegetable. 4th the price of cabbages hovers around 8 pula and 12 pula each at times rising as high as 25 pula per cabbage! and so i am sure you can see why cabbages are the the crop to grow. feel free to leave questions in the comments for more information on growing cabbages in Botswana click Here

  3. Hi boitumelo, sorry this blog has been down and out for a while. Since cabbages grow very well on most soil it would almost seem a waste to use hydroponics to grow them. However tomatoes do very well on hydroponics and by useing hydroponics to grow tomatoes you would have produce even in the hot season
