Abstract

Applied Plant Research in Lelystad has, commissioned by Gert Kema, Plant Research International (PRI) and leader of the Panama Project, performed a trial to measure the efficacy of anaerobic soil disinfestation (ASD) with a ‘Herbie” product against Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cubense (Foc; TR 4), causing panama disease in bananas. The inoculum of conidiospores was provided by (PRI) at Wageningen. Also sand and clay soil were provided by PRI; two weeks before the experiment. After ASD the efficacy against Foc was also determined by PRI with a developed diagnostic tool (component of INREF Panama Project 3)
