Abstract :

An experiment was conducted in College of Agriculture, Padannakad, Kerala during 2014-2015 to prepare micronutrient mixture for foliar spray and to evaluate this micronutrient mixture on biometric characters of banana cv. Nendran. The experiment consisted of 13 treatments as foliar sprays at immediately after planting, two weeks and three weeks after planting. Maximum plant height (20.210 cm) was recorded in T10– 0.5% 3 sprays. Highest number of leaves (6.750) and leaf breadth (7.325 cm) was recorded in T9 – 0.25% 3 sprays. T5 recorded highest leaf length (19.575 cm).
