Genetic and agronomic improvement for sustainable production of plantain and banana in sub-Saharan Africa



Genetic and agronomic improvement for sustainable production of plantain and banana in sub-Saharan Africa



African Crop Science Journal 1(1): 1-8



Musa spp. were included by IITA as mandate crops in 1987 and the PBIP was created in 1991. Major achievements to date have been the development of germplasm with resistance to black sigatoka (Mycosphaerella fijiensis) and improved systems for sustainable and perennial plantain production.
