Crop Management

Water Management

  1. During summer months, irrigate once in three days.

  2. Ensure good drainage and prevent waterlogging.

  3. About 6-10 irrigations per crop may be given depending upon soil conditions.

  4. Banana var. Nendran (October planting) grown under deep water table conditions (below 2 m from ground level) needs 10 mm (40 l/plant) irrigation once in two days during summer season to ensure higher bunch yield and better water use efficiency. Mulching the basin with 3.5 kg paddy straw (waste quality) will considerably improve the bunch yield.
