Abstract:

The field experiment was conducted at the Research Farm of Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, West Bengal to study the effect of drip fertigation on the fruit character and yield banana during 2011 to 2013). The drip fertigation was done at four evapotranspiration (ET) based irrigation levels (D1=0.6 ET, D2=0.8 ET, D3=1.0 ET for drip and surface irrigation (S) at IW/CPE 1.0) and at three fertilizer levels of recommended doses of fertilizer (RDF) viz., F1=60% RDF, F2=80% RDF and F3=100% RDF laid out in factorial randomized block design with three replications. The drip irrigation level D3 gave the highest fruit yield (40.8 t/ha) followed by that of D2 (40.2 t/ha) and D1 (34.0 t/ha) and the lowest for surface irrigation (29.0 t/ha). The higher fertilizer dose (F3) produced the highest yield (39.8 t/ha). The treatment combination, D3F3 gave the positive effect on finger and bunch characteristics. The combination also gave the maximum yield (44.6 t/ha for main and 42.5 t/ha for ratoon crop). The lowest yield was registered under conventional irrigation and fertilization system (34.2 t/ha) resulting 27% lesser yield compared with treatment D3F3.
