Why did I choose to grow bananas?

  • Few pests
  • Profit potential
  • Year-round production
  • Well suited for Pahokee
  • Market for fruits and plants
  • I wanted to do something different

Fertilizing

  • Fertilization done per plant
  • Spread in a half moon
  • On muck may only need K at 1lb/plant/yr
  • Low requirement for P
  • Issues with Ca, B, Mn during dry weather
  • On sandy soil 8-2-12+4Mg @ 1lbs per month
  • Organic option: 200 lbs of Black Kow per year
