Abstract:

Banana is a well-established fruit crop of Gujarat region and more specifically cultivar Grand Nain is well adopted due to its good yield potential and quality parameters. Banana is nutrient loving crop so application of nitrogen and bio-fertilizers plays significant role in quality improvement of crop. By considering this fact presented experiment “Quality of banana cv. Grand Nain influenced by nitrogen and bio-fertilizers” was taken during 2018-19. The experiment was designed under Randomized blocked design with factorial concept. There were two factors i.e. Factor - 1: Nitrogen level (D1 - 100 % RDN, D2 - 80 % RDN, D3 - 60 % RDN), Factor - 2: Bio-fertilizers [B1 - Azotobacter (20 ml/plant), B2 - Azospirillum (20 ml/plant), B3 - Rhizobium (20 ml/plant), B4 - 50% of B1 + 50% of B2+ 50% of B3, B5 - No bio-fertilizer (Control)]. Effects of these treatment were observed for quality parameters like total soluble solids, titrable acidity, ascorbic acid, reducing sugar, non reducing sugar, total sugar, sugar: acid ratio, pulp: peel ratio and shelf life. Although there are no significant effects of interaction on any quality parameters but individual effects of both the factor were observed significantly positive on reducing sugar, total sugar, sugar: acid ratio, pulp: peel ratio and shelf life.
