In Chitwan district, spread of an unidentified disease among the
banana trees has made farmers anxious. They claim that the disease 1st
attacks leaves, spreads to the seed, and then to the entire tree.
"Though it's not the dry season, banana trees have gone totally dry
due to the disease. We don't know what kind of disease it is," said a
farmer. In his 11-years of banana farming, he has not seen such
disease. "This disease has shocked me. Even the experts from the
agricultural department have not been able to say anything about it,"
he said.
Farmers are extremely worried over the new problem. Another farmer
stated that the disease has spread in the entire district. "So far, no
one has been able to figure this out." There will be huge loss in
banana production if the problem is not addressed soon.

[A number of banana pathogens have been reported from the region,
including, for example, _Banana bunchy top virus_, as well as the
fungal diseases of black and yellow sigatoka (_Mycosphaerella_
species) and Panama disease (_Fusarium oxysporum_ f.sp. _cubense_),
including tropical race 4 (TR4). (For more information, see previous
ProMED-mail posts in the archives.)
Symptoms described above are not sufficient to speculate on the
disease or disorder referred to. Reliable diagnosis is urgently
required as a basis for designing control or management strategies for
the affected farmers.
