Plantain’s Climatic Requirement

Plantains, like other bananas. require a hot and humid environment. Ideally, the average air temperature should be about 30°C and rainfall at least 100 mm per month. Rainfall should be well distributed throughout the year and dry seasons should be as short as possible. Irrigation is not suitable nor economically worthwhile for plantains grown by the family farmer. but may become necessary when larger fields are cultivated in areas with a long dry season.
