Epidemiological studies of yellow Sigatoka (Mycosphaerella musicola) on micropropagated Musa clones

Epidemiological studies of yellow Sigatoka (Mycosphaerella musicola) on micropropagated Musa clones

Studies were conducted at the National Center for Agriculture Research, Venezuela, to determine the reaction of some banana clones, derived from in vitro plantlets, to yellow Sigatoka caused by M. musicola. Titiaro ('Pisang mas' AA), Pineo Gigante and Brasilero (Subgroup Cavendish AAA), and Tetraploid (FAGRO-7.AAAA) were tested. Experiments began with plants less than 0.5 meters in height, and continued until they reached nearly 1.70 meters, before the blooming state.
