Aiming to double banana production by 2025
India: National Banana Festival
The area under banana cultivation in Kerala, up to 2013-14, was 118,697 hectares. Due to the initiative of the Central and State governments, the area has increased by 21,200 hectares over the last three years.
Radha Mohan Singh said the government decision to set up 32 special agricultural zones for different crops -including bananas- would be a major boost to the agricultural sector of the State.
Deccanchronicle.com quoted Singh as saying: “In India, the production and productivity of banana has considerably increased due to the adoption of high density planting, use of tissue culture plants and other interventions in post-harvest management. As many as 11,809 pack houses and 3,492,000 tonnes of cold storage capacity have been created over the last three and a half years.”
