Irrigation regime in the banana fruit, Musa AAA, clone King Similar.

Ortega E. and. Martinez R. Irrigation regime in the banana fruit, Musa AAA, clone King Similar.

Irrigation and Drainage Series, Vol. 9 No. 1: 7 -22, 1986, Cuba.

Was studied under experimental conditions the influence of different irrigation regimes on the yield of the banana fruit, Musa AAA, clone King Similar, in a in a Red Ferrallitic Compacted soil in the Experimental Station of Irrigation and Drainage, in Alquízar, province of Havana . The treatments consisted of irrigate the first 30 and 45 cm deep soil where the moisture fell to 85 and 75% of field capacity, the treatments has been distributed in a randomized block design.

The best results were obtained when soil moisture was maintained throughout the crop cycle by over 85% of field capacity, regardless of the depth of wetting, with average yields of 34 t / ha for the fomentation and 43 t / ha for the production phase. There was a high water requirement and low drought tolerance of this clone compared with other clones studied, to obtain the non-irrigated treatment, taken as control, yields of 19 and 10 t / ha for the fomentation and the production respectively
