Seems to be a lot of people with PhDs making mistakes.

In a banana nursery, measurements at the base are standard.

In this paper Revista Brasileira de Fruticultura - Development and production of banana plant 'grande naine' under different planting densities in reagions with natural occurrence of black leaf streak and this paper it is at 30 cm.,d.eXY is at 10cm. at 5cm

Bioline International Official Site (site up-dated regularly) at 50 and 100 cm

I can't find a paper that actually correlates a certain height of measurement with yield.
Some people go bananas, I went plantains.
