RP191B Banana Nutrient Trials
Replicated banana field nutrient trials will be used to assess the agronomic performance of specific nutrient management treatments primarily focused on nitrogen with secondary focus on phosphorus. Soil and water nutrient levels in conjunction with leaf nutrient testing results will be used to underpin crop growth, marketable yield, and economic performance analysis in both the initial plant and two subsequent ratoon crops.
Initial nutrient trials will begin in Nov 2018, in a new plant crop and run until December 2021. This timeframe will allow the collection of replicated, robust data, from the initial plant crop and 2 ratoon crops from within a rigorous on-station trial and multiple commercially-applicable on-farm trials throughout the major banana growing areas of the Queensland wet tropics (Tully, Innisfail / South Johnstone, Bartle-Frere / Russell).
