Abstract

Banana crop is a great lover of nutrient elements and it exhausts major and micronutrients
from the soil in large quantities and the banana soils require a continuous replenishment. Split
application of inorganic fertilizers along with organic manures increases the leaf nutrient status,
uptake and distribution of nutrients and ultimately it results in better growth and yield. In general,
under TamilNadu conditions a fertilizer dose consisting of 20t FYM, 5 kg Azospirillum and
Phosphobacteria/ha, 250g neem cake/ plant (basal dose at the time of planting) + 200:35:330 g
NPK/plant (three split doses during 3rd, 5th and 7th month after planting) along with foliar application
of 0.5% ZnSo4, 0.2% FeSo4, 0.2%CuSo4 and Borax 0.1% (at 3rd, 5th and 7th month after planting)
is recommended to get higher yield and quality fruits in banana.
