Banana is one of the important fruit crop cultivated in tropical parts of the world. An experiment was carried out at Eastern University, Sri Lanka to study the effect of Foliar Application of Banana Pseudostem Sap on Yield of Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. the banana pseudostem has been used as food (Mohapatra banana increasing steadily because of higher returns as compared to other crops. The banana pseudostem weevil is a monophagous pest. Combination of inorganic and organic fertilizers improve crop productivity while reduce environmental degradation. in sandy regosol. Banana plants are often mistaken for trees.Bananas have a false stem (called pseudostem), which is made by the lower part of the leaves.This pseudostem can grow to be two to eight meters tall. elakki bale) flower and pseudostem … Banana bract mosaic virus (BBMV) Disease symptoms. Bankim Radadiya 54,655 views. They found that the compositions of carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen of the core of banana stem (pseudostem) were 36.83%, 5.19%, and 0.93%, respectively. Seven by‐products from fermented broth were identified: propanol, isobutanol, methanol, isoamyl alcohol, 1‐pentanol, acetic acid, and succinic acid. The disease is characterized by the presence of spindle shaped pinkish to reddish streaks on pseudostem, midrib and peduncle; Typical mosaic and spindle shaped mild mosaic streaks on bracts, peduncle and fingers also observed Apart from fruit, banana crop generate huge quantity of waste biomass in the form of pseudostem, leaves, suckers etc,. Pseudostem is the cylindrical part of banana plant, made of overlapping leaf sheaths and 20-50 cm in diameter. Mango fruit is one of the most popular, nutritionally rich fruits with unique flavor, fragrance, taste, and health promoting In this research, a method was constructed to predict the pseudostem strength of banana at seedling stage. In present work, we report saccharification of banana pseudo stem using co-culture and its use as a substrate for ethanol production. The banana plant is the largest herbaceous flowering plant. Lastly, the monosaccharide in the hydrolyzate was determined by Ion Chromatography (IC) (Dionex, USA). The present investigation is focused on potential use of banana pseudostem (BPS), which otherwise is disposed off as a waste or incinerated, as a source of polyphenols or antioxidants. A real fermented broth of banana pseudostem was also used as feed for the PV experiments. Adults are strong fliers and move from one plant to another. pseudostem A false stem formed of the swollen leaf bases, as in the banana. Various fiber lengths of banana pseudo-stem bagasse (L = 3 and 15 cm) were dehydrated at various temperatures (T = 50 °C, 60 °C, and 70 °C) with and without forced air convection (Sair > 0). The outermost sheaths were peeled off and the inner pseudostem was cut into slices. with organics like banana pseudostem sap under micro-irrigation system (drip). 16:19. Banana farming generates huge quantity of biomass all of which goes as waste and the above ground parts like pseudostem and peduncle are the major source of fibre. Thousands of banana plants can be screened and identified in short time. In the harvesting time, normally the banana tree is cut and the bottom part of the stem and rhizome becomes untouched.
