[/quote] Dear Ramesh Kumar Sir, Answer for your first question is, ‘yes’ ,in high density banana plantations , provided much care is taken. Infact for any high density plantations , much care is to be taken. Diseases incidents will be more, to be taken care , Fertilisers should be properly caliculated and given , if not root competetion will occur , investment for the above will be more and ofcourse income will be very much more and we will be successful if proper care is taken. I know several farmers made good money in high density plantation of Banana and I am also one. The Banana plants reciprocates very well for Organic Fertilisers and hence let us use more organic fertilisers. For your questions 2 and 3 , Sri Sir gave good answers. g.p.rao , farmer
