Abstract:

Banana is the best-known tropical fruit. It is one of the economically important fruit crops grown in Karnataka in both homestead and commercial farms. The present study was undertaken to find the best banana genotype for northern dry zone of Karnataka with respect to yield and the economics. The study was undertaken with twenty three genotypes. Among which, the genotype Hanuman recorded the maximum bunch weight (38.77 kg) and yield (43.07 t ha-1) with the highest B:C ratio of 3.60:1. The genotype mitli performed poor with the minimum bunch weight (3.46 kg) and the lowest yield (3.84 tha-1). The minimum benefit cost ratio was reported in balbisiana genotype (-0.72:1). Among the genotypes evaluated, the genotype hanuman was found the best with respect to yield and economics under Northern dry zone of Karnataka.
