Disease resilient Banana production (BO-27.04-002-106)

Project: LNV project

Project Details


Banana-producing countries are seriously threatened in their production by Panama disease and Black Sigatoka, as nearly all commercial banana plants are clones. Organic (as opposed to mineral) fertilizers can contribute to disease control and this will be tested in this project. Involved are banana producers (Chiquita, Agrofair), companies in the banana chain (Corbana, TASTE (Technical Assistance for Sustainable Trade & Environment)), and a producer of organic fertilizers (Ferm-O-Feed).
