Abstract

Small scale growers of banana can minimize their operation cost of cultivating banana by producing their own banana seedling in their own farm. Without worrying about inconsistent supply from private nurseries and buying expensive quality banana seedling from tissue culture supplies. The small scale grower can produce their own quality banana seedling by using low cost nursery technology. Corm nursery technique (CormTech) does not require specific lab and it can be established on site at farm. By establishing low cost nursery technology in their own farm, the growers can have readily available and easily accessible of banana seedling. A part of it, reusing of own nursery material can help to reduce the operating cost throughout every cycles of nursery. Besides that, by reusing nursery material we are achieving green technology. Thus, UMK undertakes R&D on nursery technology and management focusing on low cost nursery technology to help the small scale growers of banana to reduce their operation cost to
plant banana. A Knowledge Transfer Program (KTP) research grant has been awarded to UMK to help small scale growers establishing the low cost nursery technology for expansion of banana planting in the locality (Jeli).
