Banana is the most popular fruit and also a major food crop for millions of people around the world. Fusarium wilt is a serious threat to global banana production, which nowadays mainly relies on "Cavendish" banana cultivars. Recently the disease emerged on "Cavendish" banana and since then spreads throughout South-East Asia, to the Middle-East and the Indian subcontinent and leaped into Africa. Here, we reported the presence of Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cubense Tropical Race 4 (Foc TR4) in "Cavendish" plantations in Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam (the Greater Mekong Subregion)
