Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted in the ‘Central Orchard’ main campus of the Kerala Agricultural University with the major objective of enhancing quality sucker production as well as to standardise the most economical physical method of sucker activation technique in banana cv. Nendran (AAB). The treatments consisted of physical cuts given at different heights namely half pseudostem cut, entire cut and one that involving replanting entire clump in trenches in oblique manner. These all treatments enforced at two different stages of the mother plant namely at harvest and ten days after harvest. One control was also maintained by retaining entire mother plant. These seven treatments were replicated five times in a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) formed the experiment. The study convincingly proved that replanting the entire clump in trenches in oblique manner ten days after harvest produced maximum total number as well as quality suckers. Cutting the pseudostem at half height ten days after harvest was found to be more economical one compared to all other treatments based on B: C ratio.
