Red Napier requires very fertile, well drained loamy soils having pH range of 5.5 to 8.0.
The soil should be well pulverized with the use of a rotavator
If furrows are made it should be 3 feets apart. We also avoid making furrows during planting stage by using rope / wire as marking to plant to stems and make the furrow after 30 days while doing the weeding work
The cuttings are planted flat in the furrows, 2 feets apart and covered with soil one to 2 inches thick
After planting, irrigate to enhance germination. Always irrigate when necessary
Stems will start germinating after 10 to 15 days
