CIC Banana


The Banana (musa spp) is native to South East & South Asia & makes an important contribution to the international fruit industry in South East Asia. There is no other fruit in the world, which surpasses Banana & Plantains either in production tonnage or in trade volume in fresh form (FAO, 1995). From its center of origin in South East Asia, Banana was introduced to all tropical & subtropical regions of the world where it gained importance & popularity.

Banana is the prominent cultivation fruit in Sri Lanka & is about 54% lands are cultivated of the total fruit cultivation extent. At present, Banana productivity is about 13 Mt/Ha. But, this amount is very low as comparatively with major Banana growing countries of the world. However, this production can increase up to 45-50 Mt/Ha by using high yielding variety like “Cavendish” type(which has high demand in the world), practicing with good management system. Therefore, we have good opportunity to fill this productivity gap & potential to supply are high quality fruits for export market as well as domestic market.
