Banana and Plantain Farming: One Way to Increase Yield
#1
I can’t remember where I got this valuable info. But it was in one science research paper. According to the paper, you can increase yield in a banana/plantain farm by periodically spraying the leaves and bunches with potassium sulphate (K2SO4) and 2ppm Brassinosteroid, a class of plant growth hormone. I hope this might help someone out there.

Precaution: Before you apply any spray on your plants, first test it on few plants and wait for 7 days to see if there is any bad effect. If there is none, you can proceed and spray the rest. But if your plants’ leaves start dying, review your formulation because it may be too concentrated. For example, 10g soap per liter water can kill plants.
