Growing Spinach



  • Obtain seedlings from a KEPHIS registered nursery near you.
  • Ensure a spacing of 45cm by 45cm at planting.
  • Use manure or fertilizer at planting and mix well with the soil to avoid scorching.


  • Water the plants regularly.
  • Plant new crops often to ensure a continuous supply of spinach.
  • Top-dress after 1 month (try Mavuno) and spray with Easy Gro Vegetative foliar after each harvest.
  • Remove weeds as soon as they grow.
  • Monitor/Scout your field daily to detect diseases and pests early. 
  • Control plant damage early to increase yield.


Spinach leaves are ready to harvest after 60 days. 

If pesticide/insecticide was used, be keen on the PHI as indicated on the label.
