Studies on Phenological Characters of Different Banana Cultivars (Musa) in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh

Karuna.Y | Dr. K. Kameswara Rao


Abstract: The investigation on Studies on growth and yield of different cultivars of banana was carried out during 2014-15 at 3 different mandals of Visakhapatnam district, Andhra Pradesh, India. Six banana cultivars were taken viz. , Karpura Chakkarakeli, Dwarf Cavendish, Robusta, Rashtali, Thella Chakkarakeli and Yenugubontha. The experiment was conducted in field with three replications. The six different banana cultivars were selected for various metric and non metrical observations on vegetative and yield attributing characters were recorded and statistically analyzed. Maximum plant (pseudostem) height, pseudostem girth PCA, Number of suckers at harvest and petiole length was recorded in Yenugu bontha. The highest leaf length, width and total leaves per plant were recorded in Robusta. Similarly, more leaf area, LAI was registered in Robusta. The highest bunch weight and per ha yield was recorded in Robusta whereas, finger length, girth, weight and finger volume were maximum in Yenugu bontha.
