Abstract:
An experiment entitled “Yield performance of commercial banana cultivars propagated through different methods” was carried out at the field of the AICRP on Fruits (Banana), at Horticultural Research Station, Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology (OUAT), Bhubaneswar during the year 2017-18. The experiment comprised of twelve (12) treatments replicated thrice and was laid out in a Randomized block design. The 4 varieties of banana viz., Champa (AAB), Bantala (ABB), Patkapura (AAB) and Grand Naine (AAA) together constitute 12 treatments using 3 different propagation methods (Macro propagation, Micropropagation and Sucker propagation). The standard recommended packages of practices were followed in each treatment comprising of 10 plants. Observations in respect to reproductive character of banana were analysed statistically and it will justified that Grand naine micro propagation showed promising with respect to Number of fingers per bunch, Number of hand per bunch, Hand weight, Bunch weight and Yield. Whereas, number of fingers per hand and highest finger weight was found in Champa micro propagation and Bantala macro propagation respectively.
