Question: 
Test Question--If wind speed is higher(grater than 20km/hr), what precation should be taken for banana and sugarcane crop?
Answer: 
Protection of plants from wind damage: (i) Shelter belts and wind breaks: Refers to growing trees and tall crops across the direction of prevailing wind to reduce the physiological and mechanical damage to crops. Wind breaks reduces the wind velocity and creates favourable microclimate. (ii) Adjusting the direction of planting. (iii) Providing support to the tall crops (eg) Banana.
