Ďakujem, Jerry, ale dá sa to takto napísať? Nemá každá odroda iné potreby?
Thnx to Marcel, Ante, Dr. Chiranjit Parmar and Francesco for the plants I've received.

I use here in Brazil horse manure to get one humus layer on my sandy soil in my yard. Also the red clay is very good and I saw one banana plantation on the red clay in Brazil in São Turvo do Pedro. I'm experimenting with two beds for one soil changing project for bananas. I dug two new beds, the first bed with the layers of cutten branches, leaves, rottening oranges, hay and sand and the second bed with the layers of cutten branches, hay and red clay. Then I will request my housekeeper to put horse manure on the new both trial beds. In November I will return to Brazil again and will plant new bananas. Then I will see, which bed does have the better result. The method with the better result I will widespread on my total yard to eliminar the sandy soil.

The sand I will sell or exchange for more red clay. I will speak with my housekeeper about this.

Best wishes
My new website about my bananas in Brazil - New German Banana Book to use worldwide published, currently only in German, but one English version is planned! -

Las Caracteristicas Que Expuse Son Las Del Suelo Ideal Para Musaceas Es Logico Que Cada Una De Las Variedades Tiene Sus Propias Necesidades Por Ejemplo Las Necesidades En Banano Son Mayores Que Las De Platano Porque Su Racimo Es Más Grande. Por Eso El Laboratorio Determina La Falta O Exceso De Nutrientes En El Suelo Pero Cuando No Se Tiene Un Analisis De Suelo Se Tienen Que Reconocer Las Deficiencias O Excesos De Forma Visual.pero En Mi Escrito Anterior Tienen La Base De Las Caracteristicas Del Suelo. A Como Expone Joachim Con El Suelo Arenoso Es Otro Tema Ya Que Se Habla De Textura Del Suelo Y Este Debería De Ser Franco A Franco-arcilloso.
