The Lacknau plantain: a high yielding cultivar with field resistance to the corm weevil, Cosmopolites sordidus (Germar)



The Lacknau plantain: a high yielding cultivar with field resistance to the corm weevil, Cosmopolites sordidus (Germar)



Journal of Agriculture of the University of Puerto Rico 72(3): 353-363



Five Lacknau plantain (Musa) clones were tested in the field against yellow sigatoka (Mycosphaerella musicola), C. sordidus and the nematode Radopholus similis. Ten or more functional leaves were retained by the clones even without foliar spraying against sigatoka at bunch-shooting. Due to premature senesence, however, the clones lost many leaves by harvest in both sprayed and unsprayed plots. In unsprayed plots the best clones outyielded the susceptible Maricongo by 6.5 t/ha.
