Lecture 4.Diseases of Grapes. They found that the strains had actually become more dangerous, and no longer just hijack banana's immune system, but also their metabolism. Different races have been identified. Disease spread on banana mainly occurs through the use of contaminated farm tools and with insect vectors which visit male bract and flower scars (Eden-Green, 2004). Viral diseases of the banana (dessert and cooking fruits) have spread increasingly in recent years as a result mainly of the ease of plant movement and demand for diversification. It is most commonly found in areas of poorly draining soil and areas of heavy dew. Infected banana trees produce narrow, wavy leaves with yellow margins. endobj endobj For example, Fusarium wilt was responsible for destroying many commercial plantations of the once popular and widely grown variety ‘Gros Michel’, also known as ‘Bluefields’.

The evolution of the disease depends on favorable climatic conditions and the infection starts only in young leaves including unfurled ones. Therefore, early detection and diagnosis of these diseases are important. Banana (Musa spp.) Basic requirements Bananas grow best in hot and humid climates, require a rainfall of at least 1000 mm (39.4 in) per year to survive and have a high light requirement. Currently, this group accounts for less than 1% of banana production in some countries due to its susceptibility to the Panama wilt disease.
