The project successfully developed and tested a non-chemical banana nematode control strategy and trained a range of local stakeholders in the non-chemical banana control technologies. This was despite (i) being affected by poorly distributed seasonal rainfall, giving exceptionally dry conditions at key crop stages and (ii) by local institutional re-structuring with unplanned and unavoidable staff deployments towards the end of the project.
