Effect of different bunch covering materials for improving fruit yield and quality of Banana (Musa paradisiaca)

Author(s): Ashutosh, Dr. GD Sahu, Dr. Prabhakar Singh and Maksudan
Abstract: The present investigation the effect of different bunch covering materials for improving fruit yield and quality of Banana (Musa Paradisiaca) was conducted at PFDC (Precision Farming Development Centre), Department of fruit science, College of Agriculture, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya Raipur during the year 2022 – 2023. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design with eight treatments with three replications. The results indicate that the yield parameter viz., bunch length (cm), bunch diameter (cm), bunch weight (kg) yield (t/ha) and quality parameter viz., total soluble solid (°Brix), acidity (%), Ascorbic acid mg/100 g) total sugar (%) of banana were significantly influenced by the different bunch covering materials. The results revealed that maximum yield and quality parameter were recorded at the application of T7 - Bunch cover with blue polythene bag followed by T3 - Bunch cover with transparent polythene bag. While the minimum were observed under T0 (No bunch covering).
