The recommended spacing is 3m between and 3m within the row (3mx3m). Rows should be straight exposure to sunlight.
Sloping rows should follow the contour lines to decrease soil erosion. Generally, plant in hole sizes ranging from 30-60cm deep and wide respectively.
For the size of the suckers, sword suckers, maiden suckers and tissue-cultured suckers are most recommended. A sword sucker should be between 30-100cm high, while a maiden sucker should be at least 2m high. But make sure they are got from a health mother plant.
