Abstract:
An experiment was carried out in banana cv. Grand Naine to evaluate the effect of four different planting distances with three levels of fertigation which was laid out in Split Plot Design with three replications on growth, yield and quality parameters of banana. Growth parameters like plant height and stem girth were found significantly higher with planting distance 2.0 X 2.0 m two plants per hill (S2). Plants grown under planting distance 1.2 X 1.2 X 2.0 m pair row (S1) showed significantly higher yield (t/ha) as compared to other planting distance. The maximum numbers of fingers per hand and bunch weight (kg) were found significantly with conventional method of planting 1.8 X 1.8 m (S4). Quality parameters like TSS and total sugar were found significantly higher with planting distance 2.0 X 2.0 m two plants per hill (S2). In case of fertilizer application is concerned, there was no significant result obtained for growth, yield and quality parameters of banana. For combined effect of spacing and fertilizer S1 X F1 (1.2 X 1.2 X 2.0 m planting with 10 kg FYM and 300-100-200 g NPK/plant) was found superior than other combinations.
