Publication Date : 16/10/2023
The aim of the present study was to test the effect of buckling on the rejection power of plantain (Musa sapientum L.) in situ at Gbadolite in the Democratic Republic of Congo. To this end, a randomized complete block trial was carried out using local varieties, notably Yongo, Mosantu and Ngbangele, respectively French, true and false horn cultivars, arranged in even rows; in other words, 4 blocks and 3 treatments representing 3 types of plantain, each represented by a cultivar, some samples of which were flambéed and others not. It was observed that buckling increased the rejection rate compared with controls to 183.3%, 200% and 250% respectively for buckled cultivars of the true-horn, false-horn and French types. The average number of rejections per bulb was 5 rejections per unflamed bulb versus 15 rejections from flamed bulbs for the Ngbangele cultivar, of the false-horn type; 5 rejections from unflamed Mosantu cultivar versus 16 rejections from flamed bulbs, of the true-horn type and 6 rejections from unflamed cultivar, Yongo, of the French type versus 21 rejections from flamed subjects.
