Abstract:
An investigation on “Effect of different levels of fertigation on growth and maturity of banana (Musa paradisiaca L.) Cv. Grand Naine” was conducted at Banana Research Station, Nanded, Taluka and District Nanded, Maharashtra, during year 2018-2019. The field experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with seven treatments and three replications. The experiment consist of seven treatment combinations viz., T1 - 50% RDF through fertigation, T2 - 60% RDF through fertigation, T3 - 70% RDF through fertigation, T4 - 80% RDF through fertigation, T5 - 90% RDF through fertigation, T6 - 100% RDF through fertigation, T7 (control) - 100% RDF through Soil application. An investigation showed that the maximum growth attributes viz. plant height, plant girth, number of leaves per plant and leaf area was recorded by treatment T6 i.e., 100% RDF through fertigation at 3 Months after planting, 5 Months after planting, 7 Months after planting, and at shooting stage. The treatment T6 i.e., 100% RDF through fertigation was also found better with respect to maturity attributes viz., number of days required for flowering after planting, the number of days required for harvesting after flowering and days for total crop duration. However treatment T7 (control) - 100% RDF through Soil application were recorded minimum values for growth attributes as well as crop duration attributes.
