Determinants of plantain production in the south-west of Cameroon: the use of a production observatory


Determinants of plantain production in the south-west of Cameroon: the use of a production observatory



Fruits Paris 57(2): 75-86



Some results are presented of observations at a new research station in Cameroon on factors related to yields of plantain bananas. Observations on foliar development, pseudostem circumference, numbers of fingers, finger weight, finger length and bunch weight made it possible to explain how yield was determined. This was especially affected by pre-harvest losses, which were highest at the end of the dry season.
