Banana cultivar diversity in Morogoro area


, : Banana cultivar diversity in Morogoro area. Research and Training Newsletter Dar es Salaam 6(1-4): 19-24

Over the last 4 years, a collection of about 40 cultivars from this area in eastern Tanzania has been established at the Horticultural Unit of Sokoine University and classified into 5 main groups. Groups AAA, AA and AAB account for between 90 and 98% of the total, and within these, Cavendish is the most widely grown variety, followed by Lujugira Mutika (both AAA) and plantain (AAB).
