Performance of banana for the direct feeding of major and micronutrients directly to the cut end stalk of bunch was studied at College of Horticulture, Mysore in tissue culture plants of `Grand Naine (AAA)' banana having uniform sized bunches. The experiment was conducted in the year 2015-16 and 2016-17. The results of the investigation revealed that the Treatment T7 (5g Urea + 5g SOP + 5g Banana Special + 500g Cow dung + 200mL Water) was found superior compared to other treatments with respect to finger weight and bunch weight (180.30g and 30.91 kg respectively) and it is on par with treatment T8 (10g Urea + 10g SOP + 7.5g Banana Special + 500g Cow dung + 200ml Water) (169.29g and 30.13 kg respectively). The increase in finger weight is 38.35g (T7) in comparison with the treatment control similarly the increase in bunch weight is 6.23kg (T7) in comparison with control.

Keywords: Banana, Bunch feeding, Major and micronutrients, Grand Naine and Yield.
