In order to accelerate breeding and selection for disease resistance to Fusarium wilt, it is important to develop bioassays which can differentiate between resistant and susceptible cultivars efficiently. Currently, the most commonly used early bioassay for screening Musa genotypes against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense (Foc) is a pot system, followed by a hydroponic system. This paper investigated the utility of in vitro inoculation of rooted banana plantlets grown on modified medium as a… CONTINUE READING
