Synopsis

Bananas and plantains are major fruit crops in the tropics and subtropics and make a vital contribution to the economies of a number of countries. They are very important in the nutrition of local populations as well as tradeable commodities with large markets throughout the developed world. This book provides an accessible review of the scientific principles of banana production and relates these to field practices. Although the focus is on commercial cavendish banana production, plantains are also discussed where possible. The author also makes interesting comparisons between commercial banana production in the tropics and in the subtropics, where different climates necessitate different management. Overall, the book provides a concise but broad textbook, suitable for students and non-specialist research workers and professionals in horticulture, agronomy and food science.
