How Cultyvate optimizes Banana Production

 

Globally, many countries have low productivity and quality of yield. For example, India stands first both in area and production, but has a very meager share of < 0.05 % of the international banana trade.

Worldwide, water is the most limiting non-biological factor in banana production, and copious irrigation is required at all stages of growth.

On many banana plantations, fungicides and insecticides are applied as many as forty times a year, amounting to total use of nearly 44 kilograms per hectare.

An increase of 1% in organic matter in the top 30 cm of soil will hold an extra 62,000 L of water per hectare.

Banana production is estimated to employ 40 % of the labour force.
