Banana as one of the pre-eminent products of horticultural crop has a very important role in the growth of agricultural sector in Indonesia. This research was aimed to find out the land characteristics that influence the Cavendish banana crop yield; to determine the correlation between the factors of land utilization type, soil sub-group, land slope, and land characteristics as well as the banana crop yield; to propose revised the criteria of land suitability classification for the land utilization type of Cavendish banana crop with intensive management which has been tested based on the production rate in the field; to propose some recommendations on the improvement of land management; and also to know the financial feasibility of Cavendish banana cultivation. For this purpose, there were 36 observation land units specifically designed by considering such factors as soil sub-group, land slope, land utilization type, and land productivity level. At each observation land unit, the land utilization type and land characteristics were indentified.
