as neat as they are they probably dig them up, compost them, then plant the new one in the same spot.

If you look at the video again you should notice towards the end they show the same cultivar but with ugly or uncleaned (6.2.3) pseudostems. It appears they took the video to show the difference between a cleaned (6.2.6) pseudostem and an uncleaned one. If you clean the outer leaf sheaths off your cavendish you should have a similar color.

The numbers correspond with this pdf file.

Banana mats growing in the wild can produce huge bunches of fruit for hundreds of years while coexisting with weevils. Most of the nonsense is based on the fear of the unknown, people that have no experience with weevils think they're catastrophic. I'm sure there's an app to prevent weevils.

Weevils aren't really attracted to rotting banana parts although the adults because they are nocturnal can be found during the day in old pseudostems to avoid the sun and predators.

Weevils are attracted to living banana parts because that's their food source and where they lay their eggs. If they lay their eggs in a freshly cut pseudostem, it will rot and the weevil will die before it can reach maturity.

Yea I see now kinda noticed that but didn’t pay close attention. Guess they keep them generally really clean to keep bugs/disease away.

I am searching for management...because is a shame to me say to you that I suspect that here in Brazil comercial crops still use monocrotophos.....banned in most of countries......

bad politics concerning pesticides.....it still on the run........and its very very bad,,,,,,

management of the crop wiselly.......is the only solution.....

A Bayer systemic should work. People use it for agaves, yuccas for weevils and works.
