Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the year 2017 - 2018 to evaluate the effect of planting density and nutrient management on yield, fruit quality and post harvest characters in banana cv. Ney Poovan under coconut with nine treatments replicated thrice by using factorial randomized block design. Coconut being widely spaced owing to its morphological features provides ample opportunities for cropping in the interspaces. Active root zone of coconut is confined to 25 per cent of the available land area and the remaining area could be profitably exploited for raising subsidiary crops. The present results revealed that among the different treatments, F6 P1 (100 per cent of the RDF + Azospirllum @ 100 g + Phosphobacteria @ 100 g + AM fungi @ 100 g plant-1 in single row planting) recorded best values in term of yield, quality and post harvest parameters. Hence, the application of 100 per cent of the RDF + Azospirllum @ 100 g + Phosphobacteria @ 100 g + AM fungi @ 100 g plant-1 in single row planting system in banana cv. Ney Poovan under coconut is best when compared to other treatment and control.
