- 1Prepare pits 15 days before planting.2Fill pits with topsoil and 15–20 kg of Farmyard Manure/plant per pit.3Add Carbofuran 30 gm/plant at planting, 15 grams per plant at 60 & 90 days after planting.
4Be sure your plants stay hydrated. Bananas require 25 liters (6.6 US gal) of water per plant per irrigation. In larger varieties like Nendran, up to 40 liters (10.6 US gal) of water per irrigation is required during summer months. Irrigation is done once every 3 days in summer. It is important the base of the plants are not water logged.5Loosen up the soil around the plants and earth up the plants 3 – 4 months after planting, raising the soil level at the base of the plant by about 10” – 12”.6Remove dry leaves when seen.7Remove side shoots until the emergence of flowers. Retain 1-2 suckers produced after emergence of bunch.8Deflower them. Once all the hands have developed the rest of the inflorescence is removed.9Prop up your plants. In certain varieties the heavy weight of the fruit bunch causes the plant to go out of balance. This may cause the plant to break up. To avoid this, plants should be propped up using a ‘V’ shaped pole.
- Planting is done after removing the polythene cover and making sure the roots are not damaged. Planting is usually done in the evenings. Partial shade is provided for the first two weeks to protect the plants from the sun. Irrigation is given daily until plants are established.
