Abstract:

An experiment was carried out at ICR farm, Department of Horticulture during 2015-2017 to study the effect of number of suckers per hill on growth, yield and quality of banana cv. Malbhog (AAB) in ratoon crop. The treatments were T1 (mother plant + 1 sucker), T2 (mother plant + 2 suckers), T3 (mother plant + 3 suckers), and T4 (mother plant + 4 suckers) with two spacing - S1 (2.1 m x 2.1 m) and S2 (2.5 m x 2.5 m) for all the treatments. One treatment with recommended package of practices (control) was also included in the experiment. Nine treatment combinations were laid out in RBD with three replications. Growth and yield of Malbhog banana and quality of fruits were significantly influenced by different treatments and spacing. Among the treatments, S1T1 (mother plant + 1 sucker/plant recorded higher yield (19.73 t/ha), shorter period from harvesting of first crop to harvesting of first ratoon crop (72.92 days) and benefit-cost ratio (4.75).
