  • Abstract : This study examined the effects of bunch trimming and leaf removal on rate of bunch filling, severity of the maturity bronzing fruit peel disorder, and other yield and quality parameters. There were 4 levels of leaf removal (4, 7, 10, 13 leaves retained) and 4 levels of bunch trimming (male bud retained, male bud removed, male bud and 2 hands removed, male bud and 4 hands removed) imposed on banana bunches at flowering. The experiment was carried out at South Johnstone, North Queensland.
