Role of nutrients in Banana and their need

 

Nutrient

Function

Need

Nitrogen

Protein synthesis, crop growth and higher productivity, foliage emergence and growth, Bunch quality improvement, such as production.

 

 

 

Uniform need in all

Shape of crop growth.

Phosphorous

Cell division and root growth, To build mechanism in plant system to make plant, strong.

Lessquantity but in all the stages of any growth.

Potash

Sugar translocation, stomatal movement, enzymes synthesis. To create resistance for plant diseases.

In all states of plant growth. About 80 % use in stage prior to flowering. Only initial stage in crop growth give less and at 1 month before flowering and after flowering increase the quantity and at fruit maturity reduce the quantity.

Calcium

To make cell walls strong. To provide resistance for diseases.

Calcium absorption is taken mainly shooting or shot stage. After shortly no calcium is absorbed in bunch. Calcium is mainly used for fruit production before period of shooting stage.

Sulphur

Synthesis of essential  amino acids.( Systene and Methonene)

Sulphur is mainly used and absorbed from sprouting stage to shooting stage. After shooting Sulphur absorption is reduced.

Magnesium

In Chlorophill formation

In less quantity during all

Stages of any growth.

Iron

Photosynthesis and Chlorophyll formation.

 

Mangnese

Essential in plant photosynthesis activity.

 

Boron

Cell wallstructure / arrangement, Growth pollen tube and increase its length sugar translocation, Help in various stages of plant growth.

 

Zinc

Synthesis auxim in plants.

 

Copper

To encourage different stages and stimulate nitrogen stages production in plants.

 

 

 

Molibdenum

Major component of nitrate reductase and nitrogenane enzymes.

 

 

Capacity level of banana for nutrients applied.

 

Major nutrients

Potash > Nitrogen > Calcium > Magnesium > Phosphorous.

 

Micro nutrients

Manganese > Iron > Boron > Zinc > Copper

 

 

40 T production of banana for a hectare remove 250 kg N, 60 Kg, P, 1000 Kg K, 140 Kg Mg and 15 Kg S. Accordingly based on soil test, results and varietal yield potential, we can decide the fertigation new of crop. Agri Banana can help the farmer for then and give proper guidance to farmers.
