MusAfrica ( 4): 5
Benlate dip and black sigatoka disease management in southeastern Nigeria
Treatment of susceptible plantain banana suckers by immersion in benomyl (500 p.p.m.) for 6 h before planting resulted in the lowest disease severity score (leaf area spotted by Mycosphaerella fijiensis) and highest bunch weight and fingers/bunch.
