Israel: Ginosar experienced in banana cultivation
Time:21 May 2010
Posted by

Ginosar Tissue Culture Nurseries Ltd. has been a production and cultivation organization for bananas for many years and includes plantations, nurseries and a laboratory for tissue culture plants. It markets its products in Israel and throughout the world.

It is located in the north-east of Israel, and the subtropical climate of the Jordan Valley area is hot in the summer and moderate in the winter. These climate conditions were found to be favorable for bananas and they allow Ginosar to keep producing fruit all year around.

The banana propagation is vegetative by shooter. Today these shooters are used for Tissue Culture propagation.

In this technique Ginosar isolate from the source plant a certain tissue segment which is typical to the species and the propagation system (in the case of banana ¨C the shooter). This tissue segment is cut and transferred from the outer environment contaminated with diseases, pests and pathogens, into a sterile environment on artificial food media under controlled temperature, humidity and light conditions, providing all the required food, vitamins and hormones. The purpose is to get, from the original tissue segment, a large number of plantlets that will be ready to be planted in the field after a hardening and acclimatization process, to the outer environment and another period in the nursery. From this original tissue segment they get hundreds of plants during the propagation .

Ginosar produce banana initiation ex-plants, as well as hardened plants of various varieties:

Gran Nain, Williams, Dwarf Cavendish and Selected Clones originating from the Dwarf, the Williams and the Grand Nain - lower varieties, wind resistant, that can be planted in high density, i.e. grow a lot of fruit-bearing plants per hectare (2000-2700) achieving higher yield accordingly ¨C 75-90 tones per hectare. The average bunch weight of these clones is about 40 kg./bunch.
