Guidelines for using organic manure and chemical Fertilizers for Banana Cultivation

  • Fertilizer should be applied when soil is in moist condition.
  • Integrated use of organic manure and chemical fertilizers is more beneficial than using either source alone. Therefore, repeated annual application of any organic manure within the canopy area is beneficial.
  • Basal fertilizer should be applied and incorporated in to soil at least 1-2 days before planting. Subsequent fertilizer applications can be done in a circular band around the plant within the canopy area leaving about 45 cm from the main stem and incorporated in to soil.
