Despite macadamia nut tree being a money-making harvest, several farmers don’t receive most returns, attributable to errors of omission and commission.
A mature tree will produce between 80kg and 100kg of nuts, and according to Oxfarm, an acre of land will hold to 70 Macadamia trees. This could earn a farmer, going by the present government set minimal returns of Ksh70 per kilogram of nuts, up to Ksh 500,000 – 800,000 per acre if a farmer harvest 80Kg per tree, depending on farming practices and favorable climate.
We recommend a spacing of 5m by 10m. An acre can accommodate average of 75 seedlings. Dig a hole of 2ft by 2ft then add a bucket of manure. For seedlings we have several varieties in our seedbed.
