A field experiment was undertaken at the Experimental Farm, Department of Horticulture, Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat during 2003-2004. The experiment was set in Randomized Block Design (RBD) consisting of three replications and eight treatments. The treatments comprised of T1: £500 g, T2: >500-1000 g, T3: >1000-1500 g, T4: >1500-2000 g, T5: >2000-2500 g, T6: >2500-3000 g, T7: >3000-3500 g and T8:>3500-4000 g.The results revealed that the growth parameters and yield attributes were significantly influenced by the treatments. Among them, T4 showed superiority in case of pseudostem height (278.68 cm), least phyllochron (7.76), and also shortened the planting shooting interval (181.05 days), shooting-harvest interval (97.15 days) and crop duration (278.27 days). However, T5 was observed to be the most effective for enhancement of maximum pseudostem girth (68.30 cm), total leaf production (22.99), number of functional leaves (6.97) and leaf area index (3.17).Regarding the yield and yield attributing characters, the superiority of T4 could be noticed in respect of number of hands per bunch (8.01), length of finger (24.06 cm), girth of finger (11.97 cm), volume of finger (209.36 cc), weight of finger (149.97 g) and harvest index (0.38). However, the treatment T5 exhibited the highest yield (62.71 t/ha), bunch weight (20.36 kg), number of fingers per hand (15.70).
