People in India eat 23 kg of bananas per person per year. Gujarat produces 71 kg of banana per capita, in year. Gujarat produces three times more bananas than the Indian average. There is an increase in eating bananas in the month of Shravan. Gujarat is already a vegetarian zone. Now people are eating raw food instead of cooked food.
31 million tones of bananas are grown all over the country. Gujarat produces 46 lakh tones of crop. Now that the farmers have adopted a new method of increasing the production of bananas, the production can increase significantly.
Banana cultivation uses a new fertilizer system to grow roots, plants and fruits. Farmers have come up with new methods of cultivation and fertilizer options in bananas. Its use is beneficial in providing nutrient solution at different stages of plant growth. Roots, plants and fruits and flowers are very well developed.
Fresh cow dung, cow urine are used for new farming methods and fertilizer substitutes. 200 kg fresh dung and 20 to 30 liters of cow urine is collected in a cement tank. One kg of phosphate culture is added. Rhizobium culture divides farmers by one kilo. Take three kg of any ash, pour one thousand liters of water into a large tank and swirl it through a centrifugal pump for 24 hours.
Plants are nourished by pouring the prepared solution at the bottom of the dripper at the rate of 500 ml in drip irrigation. The farmer has experienced that the use of this solution is beneficial when there is a need for nutrition at different stages of plant growth. Roots, plants and fruits and flowers are very well developed.
In Gujarat, 46 lakh tones of bananas are grown in 70,000 hectares of banana orchards. The yield is Rs9 to 10 lakh per hectare. This new method reduces the present cost by Rs 2.50 lakh per hectare. Production is increasing well.
