Bunch covers, leaf number and yield of bananas

Bunch covers, leaf number and yield of bananas

Aust. J. exp. Agric. Anim. Husb, 10: 802-5. bibl. 6

The effects of plastic bunch covers and different defoliation treatments on bunch weight were measured on Williams bananas. Bunch covers did not significantly affect bunch weight, and the number of leaves left on the plant at bunch emergence only reduced yield when less than 4 leaves were present. Leaf length duration (leaf length x longevity) was positively related to bunch weight. Bunch covers did not alter the relationship between leaf number and yield.
