Martinez V. R. Banana water requirements at different times of plantation.
Irrigation and Drainage Research Institute, Havana, Cuba, 1988.
In the region of Alquízar at the Experimental Station of Irrigation and Drainage in the province of Havana, is studied in a Ferrallitic Red Compacted soil, the water requirements of Banana, planted at different times: in March, June, September and December. It was found that:
The average evapotranspiration crop cycle of the Banana is increased when the plantations moved from March to September, decreasing the consumption in the plant in December.
The maximum value of real evapotranspiration was planted in September, which reached an average intensity of 3.42 mm / day and a total real evapotranspiration of 1404 mm / cycle. The lower real evapotranspiration accounted for planting in December, with an average of 2.28 mm / day and a total real evapotranspiration of 1024 mm / cycle.
