Bananas are widely grown in Kenya as a staple food and as an income generating activity by many local communities. Due to a widespread problem of viral diseases, in vitro or tissue culture bananas propagation has been used by Kenyan researchers to produce disease free growing materials.These plants are genetically uniform, superior, disease free and high yielding.This leads to increased economic benefits per unit area of land. Bananas grow well in a wide range of climate from sea level upto 1800m in humid conditions. Minimum rainfall of 1000mm per year is required especially at the flowering time. Irrigation is therefore essential in low rainfall growing areas. Bananas should be grown on well drained fertile soils, as they cannot withstand water logging. Thorough land preparation should be done during the dry season. Sowing should be carried out at the beginning of the long rains for rain fed crop in Kenya. Dig holes measuring 1M× 1M× 1M and separate the top and subsoils, then mix the top soil with 40kg [2medium buckets] of well rotted manure per planting hole, 200g DAP fertilizer, 15 grams / 3 teaspoonfuls of nematicide.
