Author(s):

Abstract:
Banana is one of the most preferred crop gaining popularity in Kerala. Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Kollam conducted an experiment in 2016-17 for assessing the effect of foliar and soil application of micronutrient mixtures in banana for yield enhancement. The trial was replicated in ten farmer’s field. Different treatments tried under the trial were T1-Farmers practice, T2- (recommended dose of fertilizers as per POP along with Sampoorna KAU multimix and T3- (recommended dose of fertilizers as per POP along with Ayar. The results of the trial revealed that soil application of ayar along with recommended dose of fertilizers resulted in 12.6 percent yield increase than the foliar application of Sampoorna KAU multimix in banana. Highest yield of 20.6 t/ha was reported from ayar application in banana followed by Sampoorna KAU multimix (18.3 t/ha), while lowest yield was from farmers practice (14.8t/ha). Farmers practice reported highest pest incidence of 15.6%, followed by application of Sampoorna KAU multimix (6.3%), while least pest incidence was reported in ayar application (4.1%). Highest BC ratio of 1.94 was noticed in ayar applied banana followed by 1.71 in Sampoorna KAU multimix application, while least BC ratio of 1.40 from farmers practice.
