Inoculating Cavendish bananas with an avirulent Fusarium strain might protect them against Panama disease

Inoculating Cavendish bananas with an avirulent Fusarium strain might protect them against devastation by Panama disease

The WUR-Interdisciplinary Research and Education Fund (INREF) explored the potential of SAR and ISR by treating Cavendish banana plants with an avirulent R1 Fusarium strain as well as six Fusarium spp.–including four that are pathogenic on other crops but not on banana—to prevent or slow down pathogenesis of TR4.

Additionally, they performed a transcriptome analysis to study gene regulation during the initial stages of infection upon inoculations with individual TR4 and R1 strains as well as various challenge inoculation with both strains and also determined the effects of abiotic stresses on cross protection.
