The anthracnose of Abaca, or Manila Hemp
Philipp. Agric 13(8): 337-344
In April and May 1924 fruit bunches of abaca (Musa textilis) severely attacked by anthracnose were collected from the Los Banos district of the Philippine Islands, where infection is stated to be general during the wet season on the leaves of seedlings ranging from 5 to 20 cm. in height. The disease causes only slight damage to the plants, which usually outgrow it when vigourous, and is regarded as of no great economic importance.
