Grows 16 Banana bunches per round.
~ In-game description

Banana Plantation is the third upgrade of Path 1 for the Banana Farm in BTD6. It roughly corresponds to the Banana Republic upgrade from BTD4 and BTD5. Banana Plantation allows it to produce 16 bananas per round instead of 8, valuing at $320 when all bananas are collected (or $400 with 3-2-0 crosspath, $416 with More Valuable Bananas).

It costs $2,550 on Easy, $3,000 on Medium, $3,240 on Hard, and $3,600 on Impoppable.


Banana Plantation is one large banana tree that becomes four smaller trees and a cross river from an edge of farm. The Banana Plantation will no longer "jump" heavily when deploying bananas, but rather it will nudge upwards whenever it does so.



Banana Plantation heavily increases the total numbers of bananas produced each round. Although it produces many more bananas, picking up the bananas can be a bigger hassle, and the overall income generation rate is less efficient than that for Marketplace. Unless going for Banana Research Facilities later on, it's best not to invest in Banana Plantation spam, as Marketplace is remarkably more cost-efficient and usability-efficient.


  • Avoid simply going for Banana Plantation, because it is less efficient compared to its cost compared to a Marketplace. Only purchase this upgrade if either leading towards Banana Research Facility without wanting to sell any of the Farms to get there or once all lower-tier Farms are within range of applicable Banana Farmers.
  • Try go for a 3-2-0 Plantation over a 3-0-2 Plantation, as Valuable Bananas will grant more income per banana, although the Plantation still isn't too bad without the Path 2 upgrades.
  • Banana Plantation is space-efficient, but Marketplaces make more money overall compared to Plantations and do not require picking up bananas nor requires a Monkey Farmer. However, Plantations can be upgraded to Banana Research Facilities later on, so if this is an option to look forward to then go for Plantation spam.
  • If farming for Plantation spam, try starting with 2-0-0 Farms first before starting the first Plantation.

Version History[]

While still less efficient at income production compared to earlier Banana Farm upgrades or even the base Banana Farm, Banana Plantation's space efficiency makes it a viable option in situations where space efficiency could potentially be necessary. Marketplaces later dominated Plantations in their regard in later updates, but both options got buffed throughout history of BTD6.

  • Buff Cost of Banana Plantation reduced ($3,400 → $3,000).

  • This upgrade in a way corresponds to the old Banana Republic upgrade in BTD4 and BTD5. However, the pre-BTD6 Banana Republic gave $500 total per round instead of $320 for the BTD6 Banana Plantation.
  • The Banana Plantation replaces Banana Republic as the Tier 3 upgrade of Path 1 for the Banana Farm. It is likely due to naming concerns.
  • The old Banana Plantation from between BTD4 and BTD5 corresponds more towards the Greater Production upgrade, but produces less bonus income.
