The effect of sucker type and size on the growth and development of banana (Musa ABB group)

, : The effect of sucker type and size on the growth and development of banana (Musa ABB group). Acta Horticulturae (53): 341-347

Three types of suckers (sword, maiden and bit) of 3 sizes (small, medium and large) of the local banana Alata Kwadu were compared during a 23-week growth period. Sword suckers were the most suitable type of planting material, emerging early, giving the largest leaf area and the most vigorous plant growth. They were, however, poor in suckering themselves, and thus inferior to maiden suckers for multiplying new clonal material. Bits were very poor in growth and development.
