By National Horticulture Board on 30 Apr 2016 | read


Banana requires copious irrigation. The irrigation needs very considerably depending upon the topography, soil, climate and variety. Near Jalgaon ( Maharashtra) irrigation is given at an interval of 3-4 days during the hot weather. After the rains, both the number of irrigation and the quantity of water are reduced. The basin method of irrigation is most commonly adopted. In this method water is supplied to the plants themselves and not to the intervening spaces that do contain roots. Avoid connecting one basin with another during irrigation as a general precaution.Tissue culture plants respond very well to drip irrigation. Drip irrigated plants have more vigorous growth, resulting in early and better yield. In the case of flood irrigation, once week irrigation is recommended.
