Title: Growth and Yield Responses of Banana Plant To Desuckering Practice
Author: Gasim, Seif Mudawi; Mahdi, El Fatih M.; Bakhiet ,Salah B
Abstract: The objective was to study the influence of three selective levels of sucker pruning namely: (mother + 2 followers, mother + 3 followers and mother + 4 followers) on growth and yield of the banana compared to the traditional farmer practice (without pruning management). The results revealed a significant reduction in growth and yield parameters of banana plant with increase in number of suckers left with the mother plant. The treatments did not display significant variation in the time to shooting and pseudostem girth in the first cycle but significant effect was shown in the second cycle. The effect was clearly observed when no desuckering was practiced. Generally the high productivity associated with desuckering was mostly due to the high number of hands per bunch and the large fruit size.
