@Ola, you can use only organic fertilizer and poultry manure they say is the best. May be you can combine your pig manure with it. As for dosage, I don't really know. I'll just use my head and add a little at a time and watch the leaf color and growth rate.

That is a disease, probably fungus and not due to manure. You should call in people that has knowledge about plantain diseases.

Thanks so much, I think it is the breed, i was able to find an answer with picture on the internet


"On some varieties such as Cavendish types, leaves
of young banana suckers naturally have maroon-colored
blotches that should not be mistaken for symptoms of black
leaf streak disease. These blotches are not present on leaves
of older plants"
