Abstract: Bananas are widely grown in the CNMI and are an important food crop for domestic consumption and are for sale on the local market. Exports of green bananas to Guam are increasing and this business is expected to expand. There is also a growing demand for value added banana products, which command a premium price. The information contained in this guide has been obtained through variety of trials of banana conducted under the USDA approved project awarded to Dr. Dilip Nandwani 'In-vitro Propagation, Convervation and Field Evaluation of Banana in the Northern Mariana Islands.' Field trials of new varieties of banana were conducted throughout the CNMI from 2007 to 2010.
Sponsor: Funding for this project was provided by a Hatch Grant #NMA 01 from USDA-National Institute for Food and Agriculture. Additional funding was provided by Agricultural Development in the American Pacific.
