Fertility of the soil. And the needs of growing banana growers want to harvest a few times. If you want to harvest only once, it may have grown rapidly . If you want to grow and harvest many times apart. To provide space for the spire .


Dig a hole 50 cm deep, 50 cm width and the excavated soil was dry 5-7 days after removing top soil to dry down to the bottom of the pit . Manure or compost decomposition . Up to about 20 cm of soil mixed with manure or compost into the top layer . Then that shoots bananas prepared . Placed at the center of the hole. Drown out the soil watered , and press the soil firmly. Most of the shoots should be about 10 cm higher than the level of bud scars should turn in the same direction. When fully grown, and fruit . The results will be in the direction opposite to the lesion. And in the same direction. For ease of operation. If so , caused by tissue culture . Is the direction of the lesion.

The manure or compost and fertilizer from growing . In the first phase should provide a nitrogen fertilizer during the first 2 months by a urea fertilizer once a month and 3 months and 4 fertilizer formula 15 - 15 - 15 kg division at 1-2 in the fifth and 6 The fertilizer formula 13 - 13 - early 21st 1-2 kg .

The crutches
