Production Analysis of Banana Supply Chain Management in Thailand

Adisak Suvittawat


The objective of this research is to identify the main concerning factors of Thai banana farmers’ production.This study was used primary data from interviews with banana farmers. Secondary data were used from literaturereview for confirmation.This study found that the problems begin at the seedling stage, when low survival rates affect the numbers ofbananas per area, the growth rate of seedlings, the appropriate seedling age, plant material durability and higherproduction costs.The main problems at the growth stage that must be managed by farmers include soil fertility, suitable fertilizermethods and application rates, weevil infestations, and drought conditions.Banana yields and quality have an impact on farmers’ incomes since higher yields provide higher incomes. Goodquality crops offer farmers absolute benefits, since farmers can then sell bananas at a high price and their bananaswon’t be rejected.Production is an important part of banana supply chain management. Methods or technologies must be identified andapplied to create value for farmers. This also benefits consumers since they want high quality bananas andchemical-free bananas. Thailand’s banana industry must consider various aspects of production as importers orimporting countries are currently asking for high quality bananas that are also free of any chemical residue.
