Worldwide, water is the most limiting non-biological factor in banana production, and copious irrigation is required at all stages of growth.
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.
On many banana plantations, fungicides and insecticides are applied as many as forty times a year, amounting to a total use of nearly 44 kilograms per hectare.
Banana production is estimated to employ 40 % of the labour force.
