Top quality banana cultivation with drip irrigation

Achieving high-quality banana yield requires the best irrigation and fertilizer management systems. As with other crops, banana crop too requires a higher amount and higher quality yield. This is possible through precision irrigation. Right from achieving the perfect finger size to optimally extending the productive life of each plantation, precision irrigation helps you achieve every ideal condition and increase profits.

The challenge for banana growers

Banana requires a lot of water to grow, and hence dry spells are a major risk impacting banana productivity. The other challenge is that of banana cultivation being dominated by conventional growing techniques that include applying fertilizers in the forms of pellets. Although cost-effective, it is ineffective. This is because nutrients may leach or evaporate after their application. Bananas are best grown in more acidic soil with a pH from 6 to 7.5. Low pH levels of soil increase the risk of the disease Panama.

Why precision irrigation?

  • Reduce Climate Related Risks
    Precision irrigation helps lower climate-related risks and also risks associated with unpredictable factors detrimental to banana growth. It offers the right amount of water, nutrients to the banana crop root, thus making it possible for the cultivators to have control over the yield.
  • Catering to the Plant Requirement and Saving Resources
    Precision irrigation supplies the right quantity of water and nutrients to the plant roots, which therefore eradicates the need to spend excess resources to achieve a higher yield. This helps save on valuable resources, and therefore on operational costs as well.
  • Optimal use of Land
    Precision irrigation helps bring a comparatively large volume of land under irrigation. This subsequently helps to make optimal use of land and get the most of each and every hectare.
