Leaf characteristics for the identification of the banana cvs 'Robusta' and 'Giant Cavendish'
Leaf characteristics, leaf index and leaf area, were used to identify the banana cvs 'Robusta' and 'Giant Cavendish'. Two discriminant functions, one with a single characteristic of two standard leaves, numbers 8 and 11, and the other with two characteristics of a single standard leaf, number 8, are presented and discussed.
