Abstract:
Relationships between climate and soil on mineral composition of banana were studied by collecting the NRB type rasthali banana and planted in Farm of Collage of Horticulture Mysore and Collage of Agriculture Hassan, Karnataka to evaluate contributions of theses factor on rasthali banana fruit pulp. The soil physical and chemical characteristics were performed in the experiment and observed variation in the habitat chosen for the study. Mineral extraction was done from dehydrated banana pulp. The Fe, Cu, Zn and Mn analysis was done by Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry and K analysis was done Flame Photometry and Ca content analysis was done by Titration method. There was a significant mineral content diversity found among the different habitat of banana pulp. The found the estimate data reflecting the diversity of soil chemical, physical status and the climatic condition. The characteristic taste and flavour of respective environmental and soil conditions of fruit, the study supports the concept of interaction of the climatic condition and soil characteristics of particular plant entity.
