Abstract:
An experiment entitled “Yield performance of New Banana (Musa spp.) Genotypes” was carried out at the field of the AICRP on Fruits (Banana), at Horticultural Research Station, Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology (OUAT), Bhubaneswar during the year 2017-18. The experiment comprised of five (05) treatments replicated four times and was laid out in a Randomized block design. The 5 varieties of banana viz. BRS selection Popoulu (AAB), Nendran (AAB) as check, Manjari Nendran, NRCB Selection-10 (ABB) and Budubale (ABB) as check. The standard recommended packages of practices were followed in each treatment comprising of 20 plants.Observations in respect to reproductive character of banana were analysed statistically and the result indicated that among all the genotypes studied, NRCB Selection-10 proved its superiority in terms of yield and yield attributing characters. The above genotype also performed well with the highest number of hands as well as fingers per bunch. The traits like finger weight, finger girth and pulp to peel ratio was found to be highest in BRS Selection Popoulu which makes it par with NRCB Selection-10 with respect to bunch weight and yield.
