Effect of bunch cover on morphological parameters and yield of banana


Effect of bunch cover on morphological parameters and yield of banana



Advances in Plant Sciences 9(2): 131-137



ISSN/ISBN: 0970-3586

During the investigation it was observed that the yield contributing characters namely bunch weight, bunch length, number of fingers per bunch, finger length, finger weight, finger volume and weight of second hand were found significantly influenced by different bunch cover treatments. However the highest 15.25 kg bunch weight and 67.78t/ha fruit yield was obtained in case of white polyethylene cover along with mustard oil cake as soil application as compared to control with 7.37 kg and 32.74t/ha bunch weight and fruit yield respectively. There was a lower cost:benefit ratio also in case of white polyethylene cover along with mustard oil cake as soil application which had 1:2.80 where as in case of mustard oil cake as soil application alone had the lowest 1:1.92 cost:benefit ratio mainly due to higher cost of material. However, the white polyethylene bunch cover alone gave the highest 1:3.53 cost:benefit ratio in comparison to other treatments and found suitable to overcome the effect of low temperature.
