Abstract: The present investigation was carried out during the year 2022 - 2023 at Agriculture Research Station, Achalpur under Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, (M.S.), India to evaluate the effect of biostimulant on growth, yield and quality of banana crop. The experiment consisted of sixteen different drenching and spraying treatments were repeated two times in RBD. The result indicated that, among the various treatments, banana responded significantly to application of biostimulants (BioBLOOM and NitroKICK). The growth and yield parameters of banana were conspicuously higher with application of biostimulants (BioBLOOM and NitroKICK) as compared to control. Treatment T16 ( S3– 3 liter/acre BioBLOOM drenching application at 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5th month + F3- 500 ml/100 liter of NitroKICK as a spraying in 1, 2 and 3rd month after planting) was recorded significantly highest number of fruits per bunch (150.00), fruit weight (167.00 g), length of fruit (21.00 cm), girth of fruits (12.95 cm), bunch weight (25.85 kg) and yield (114.89 t ha-1) which wear at par with T11, T12, T14 and T15 treatment. Treatment T16 recorded highest gross income (Rs 804230), yield (114.89 t ha-1), increased yield over control (32.62 t ha-1) and percent increase in yield (39.65) over control which wear at par with T11, T12, T14 and T15 treatment (Table 2). Hence treatment T11, S2 – 2 liter/acre BioBLOOM drenching application at 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5th month after planting + F2- 400 ml/100 liter of NitroKICK as a spraying in 1, 2 and 3rd month after planting found best.
