Banana fungal & bacterial wilt (Foc/Bacteria)
Project goal To improve understanding of the epidemiology of banana wilts within the context of an interregional hamonization of approaches to control these diseases. Expected outcomes
- Information on the epidemiology and management of fungal and bacterial wilts in different regions harnessed to develop best management practices and avoidance strategies
- Banana susceptibility to wilt strains/races mapped and resistant varieties identified.
- Science-based tools to ensure country readiness for exclusion and containment in the areas where the wilts are not yet present developed and appraised.
