Hello - I'm David from New Zealand. A bunch of us are trying to start a banana industry here - we currently grow bananas in NZ, albeit slower than warmer places, on a very small scale but the fruit generally has excellent taste & is way better than the commercial fruit available in the supermarkets.

Does anyone know what the calcium requirement of the plants is please ?
