Parent to sucker competition within a banana mat






Information Bulletin, Citrus and Subtropical Fruit Research Institute (157): 11-13

Parent to sucker competition within a banana mat

In trials in 2 places Williams bananas were planted in September or December each at densities of 1250 or 1666 mats ha, and the first ratoon (R1) sucker was selected and retained 5 or 10 months after planting. Early R1 sucker selection did not delay the plant crop cycle by more than a few days; however, early-selected R1 suckers were strongly inhibited by the parent plant, resulting in a total R1 cycle time of 4-5 months longer than with the late-selected suckers.
