A “banana farmer” is one who, operates not less than 2 acres of banana plantation, and keeps it 75% weeded and bunchy top free, sprays it with fungicides at two-week intervals, and maintains a monthly planting program of not less than 200 plants per month for the first four month, 100 plants per month thereafter. If a farmer has three acres of existing crops, he is required 50 new plants every month thereafter (for reporting purposes, use Attachment-Sample C, set out at the end of this chapter).
