This volume discusses ways of improving cultivation techniques to make production more sustainable. Part 1 reviews current yields, production trends and constraints. Part 2 surveys ways of improving cultivation practice whilst Part 3 discusses harvest and post-harvest operations. The final part of the book assesses ways of measuring and improving the environmental impact of banana cultivation. Drawing on an international range of expertise, this collection focuses on ways of achieving more sustainable cultivation of banana at each step in the value chain, from propagation to post-harvest operations. This comprehensive collection will be a standard reference for the banana research community as well as banana producers."@en ;
