Abstract


The constraints threatening plantain production in the eastern of DR-Congo include soil fertility. An experiment was conducted at the National Institute for Agricultural Study and Research at Nioka Research Station to evaluate the effect of organic manures and mulch on growth and yield parameters of plantain (Musa AAB). This study revealed that response of organic manures was significant for all the parameters. Manure application enhanced significantly banana plant growth and yield. The highest bunches weight and yield were produced by the plants receiving manure (24.03t/ha) and mulch (23.24 t/ha) while, lowest bunches and yield were harvested in control plot without fertilizer (17.64 t/ha).

Author Keywords: Banana, Mulch manure, Soil fertility, growth Parameters, yield.
