Windborne dispersal of sigatoka leaf spot pathogens

Abstract

Recent studies to determine whether long-distance dispersal of the pathogens causing Yellow and Black Sigatoka diseases in banana and plantain plays a significant role in the epidemiology of these diseases are inconclusive. This paper reviews current knowledge and identifies areas where further studies are needed to establish the relative roles of wind transport and transfer of diseased material in disease spread.
