Growth information and the accumulation of nutrients in banana curls allow you to plan rational methods of cultivation and fertilizer application. To contribute to this knowledge, the objective of this study is to evaluate the accumulation of travel and the export of nutrients in banana 'Silver', during winter and summer, the largest producer of bananas region of Brazil, under field conditions, in one design in randomized blocks. The experiment will be carried out in split plot, with the plots two seasons (winter and summer) and, as subplots six seasons collections, namely: 1) when the plants begin the bunch; 2) when you can see a bunch female and fruit (female flowers), discovered by bracts; 3) when it is possible to visualize three female fruit bunches and discovered by bracts; 4) where possible all the female hands or fruit, which is when the first male hands begin to open; 5) when you can view five internodes after issuance of the last bunch female, when the clusters are bagged as commonly occurs in the culture of driving practices (Moreira, 1999); 6) when the bunches crop, so that the fruits of two bunch still show edges, corresponding to the degree of ripeness "slim ¾" (Moreira, 1999). It will evaluate each of the content and the accumulation of nutrients in plant tissue and the relative rates of absorption of nutrients, organogenic net accumulation rate and relative growth rate.
