AGRO-KS GROWNFREE BANANA PROGRAM:

Objectives of the MAIN Project

To determine the effects of Agro K products in improving the productivity and in managing of Sigatoka disease of Cavendish banana using a less chemical approach. Specifically: 1.To produce bananas free of Pesticide (common foliar fungicides) 2. Elimination of ground Urea and MOP 3. Improved production

AGRO-KS GROWNFREE BANANA PROGRAM:

Farm: Greenfarm , Lasang Davao Cit Total Area: 3 has Date Initiated: Week 14, 2010

Baseline Production Data: Average bunch weight : 24.6 kilos Average hand class: 8.9 hands

NIRMAJECT SPIKES

inserted to the newly harvested pseudostem which maximizes the

natural translocation process between the mother and the daughter . It can be used in all weather conditions and is designed to eliminate ground fertilizer application.

NIR BOOSTER
An injectable nutrient fertilizer comprised of phosphorous salts of calcium, magnesium and copper. Designed to stimulate growth and production thus allowing plants to grow faster, emit new leaves sooner, shoot earlier and produce larger bunches with more hands and fingers an obvious economic advantage to growers.

SYMBEX
A Microbial Activator combined with selected micronutrients to enhance the physical, chemical and biological properties of the soil. It increases native microbial populations naturally, that will promote the release of nutrients from unavailable to available from.

AGRO-KS GROWNFREE BANANA PROGRAM:

SUMMARY
Currently: 1.There is an improvement in the bunch weight of about 4 kilos per bunch 2.Ground MOP was successfully eliminated without compromising the bunch weight 3.More K is absorbed with spikes based on leaf tissue analysis 4.Sigatoka is managed through calcium feeding and NIR boosting 5.Extending plantation life without the need for
