Banana (Musa spp.)

Banana prefers tropical humid lowlands and is grown from the sea level to 1000 meter above MSL. It can also be grown at elevations upto 1200 meter, but at higher elevations growth is poor. Optimum temperature is 27°C. Soils with good fertility and assured supply of moisture are best suited.
