A dataset on above- and below-ground traits of 21 species found in banana cropping systems, cultivated individually

Damour G., Tardy F., Dorel M., Moreau D.. 2020. Data in Brief, 31 : 7 p..

The data presented in this article describe 21 species that can be found in banana cropping systems: 17 cover crops species, 2 spontaneous species and 2 cultivars of banana. The cover crop species belongs mainly to Fabaceae family, but also to Poaceae, Euphorbiacea and Asteraceae. Four repetition of each species were cultivated individually, in the field, under non-limiting conditions. 40 variables were measured on whole plant, leaves and roots, at flowering or after six months of growth for longer cycle species. This dataset is made available to provide data on these species, enable comparisons between datasets and meta-analysis on cover crop or on species presented in arable fields. The data presented in this article were used in the research articles entitled ¿Trait-based characterisation of cover plants' light competition strategies for weed control in banana cropping systems in the French West Indies¿ (Tardy et al. 2015) and ¿Trait-based characterization of soil exploitation strategies of banana, weeds and cover plant species¿ (Tardy et al. 2017).
