Abstract:

Banana (Musa paradiscica L) is a very important fruit crop. It ranks second in the table of importance after mango. It can be grown in tropical and sub-tropical regions. It is grown for its commercial importance since it has both medicinal properties and nutritive value. Due to its qualitative property and high nutritive value banana enjoy its significance in the community. Keeping in view its high commercial importance, an on farm trial was designed for standardization of fertilizer in banana for quality yield. This trial was conducted during FY 2014-15 and 2015- 16 in banana growing areas of Bhagalpur district. Banana is a heavy feeder crop that needs management round the year. In utilization of nutrient, it is very critical. Like in the initial stage of growth; higher dose of nitrogen can be used. As far as potash is concerned, its dose can be increased with the age of plants towards flowering. Last dose of fertilizer is applied at the time of blooming of flower. Plant in it, has an inbuilt phosphorus management property. The trial was conducted with treatments T1 T2 and T3. Out of these treatments, T1 performance was the best (that is 400gof urea +150g of DAP +700g of Muriate of potash) (banana cultivation guide, 2013). It was applied on different date of sowing. Yield performance was found best with yield of 67.89 tonnes per hectare. Regarding BC Ratio same pattern was found, it was highest 3.30.The result was supported by other parameters like plant height, stem girth weight of banana, weight of bunch. Worst result was found in T3 that is400g urea, 200g DAP and 150g MOP per pseudostem. Yield obtained in this treatment was 59.74 tonnes per hectare. Whereas in farmers practice it was lowest with 47.52 tonnes yield with BC Ratio 2.50.
