With a view to find out the effect of HDP in banana cv. Robusta (AAA), a field experiment was conducted with 13 treatments each replicated 4 times in a randomized block design. The treatments included conventional single sucker/pit, 3 and 4 suckers/pit at a spacing of 1.8 m × 3.6 m and 3.6 m × 3.6 m. When compared to conventional planting, all the HDP treatments resulted in increased vegetative characters such as pseudostem height, leaf number, leaf area, leaf area index and also reduced the pseudostem girth and phyllochron.
